Perfect for a spring stroll through your city! The entire Historiann household has been on a spring vacation for the past few days, and will be away for a few more. I’ll continue checking in from the road, and perhaps posting vacation photos along with my prankish yet trenchant observations on early American history, gender and sexuality issues, academic politics, the 2008 Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, and occasionally, vintage Barbies.
For those of you wanting some not-academic politics to get you going in the morning, check out Bob Somerby’s post yesterday, a twofer rundown of Paul Krugman’s Friday column and a glimpse of the Sunday New York Times Magazine article about idiot blowhard Chris Matthews. As always, Le Somerby is incomparable! Why can’t Bob take Matthews’s job? Why, Lord, why?
