“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Another Full Day

I like my job so much I put in another in a series of very full days. I'm being trained up as director of undergraduate studies. Last time I did this the job I was at had 1200 English majors. Rice has 77.

Nevertheless, my line so far has been--"I'm the new director of undergraduate studies. Run for your life."
