I need to work (and find a job). Feel free to direct any questions about the Evil Empire/Institutional Network of French Theory to Brad DeLong. I dunno, I guess he read some Foucault once as an undergrad. Or, you could chew on this. Happy belated birthday to Ingmar Bergman and to Woody Guthrie. Also some neat stuff here, here and here.
nb. I'm not really on hiatus, just reminding myself I can be. Maybe this will help.
