As if the decline in our once great educational system wasn’t already apparent, I received news last night that one of my academic papers was accepted for publication in a scholarly journal. I would tell you which journal, but I would feel guilty repaying their favor by dragging down their reputation.
To paraphrase Groucho Marx, I would never want to be published in any publication willing to publish me. I have high standards.
I had planned to write another hilarious post today about the slapstick comedy that is my life, but that was before I realized that I was going to have to rewrite my paper to make some revisions as suggested by the editors. (Surprisingly, changing my name was not one of them)
As I mentioned yesterday, I am stuck in the midwinter doldrums, and with work picking up again, and two weeks of teaching left, I feel as gray as the blanket of clouds today. So don’t be surprised if I break out some reruns during the next few weeks, just to try to give the appearance of having something worthwhile to say.
