Opening Day!

The first day of class is always exciting, even if it's a mini-semester in July and even if it's "remote"... but remote doesn't have to mean distant (except geographically). Looking forward to Zooming with you this evening, MALA 6050 "Evolution in America" students.

Our morning dogwalk was delayed by the rain, so I took the opportunity to make this little video out back in my Little House (shed, shack, cabin, "man cave") while we waited for the weather to clear. File this under "Introductions" (and "Opening Day" of course).

It is so epically badly written I’ve always wondered why the editor let it be published. And why Quine couldn’t see it himself. I wonder if he just never read an autobiography or memoir?

Of that pair, surely Sellars was the odder. But their being together in close quarters might have amplified each’s strangeness. Quine was also apparently a fantastic banjo player.
