IRONIES. I too, intended to take a "No Posting Day." Welcome, however, to visitors from the Carnival of Education (which is yielding hit after hit after hit after hit) and to Villainous Company readers (thanks for the recommendation!) There's also some traffic thanks to this recommendation from King at SCSU Scholars, who has a post on the folly of self-congratulation as a basis for policy that is worth your careful attention. At work today, I've also discovered that yes, there is expense preference behavior afoot, and at least one dean at Northern Illinois University is to be named to the deck of cards.
