I've just wrapped the first week of classes. Tired, so tired. This semester I'll be splitting responsibilities between two campuses and teaching six courses. Tried relying on trains and buses yesterday and while I like feeling green and reading Harry Potter, I left home yesterday morning at 9 and returned at 8. 11 hours there and back with only 3 hours of teaching. Not efficient. It looks like I'll be driving.
Apologies to those who left comments lately. I've not had much time to respond to them. I don't have internet access at TCU and limited access at the moment at SMU. This will change in time, I'm sure, but it will take time.
In news news, I'm thrilled to see that McCain has decided to bring on a running mate who doesn't actually know what the job of the VP is. That's some outside the box thinking! I'm sure there's an argument for picking Palin as a running mate, but a good one? I would have thought that you couldn't throw a rock at a group of Republicans without hitting someone with more experience and with two rocks you could hit someone with more experience that you could use to pander to the religious right.
