Sine.Qua.Non

That was lovely, made me smile...going to Amazon to purchase said book and one for fainting spells to be delivered to one Scott Eric Kaufman...that or some smelling salts...

Belle Lettre

Oddly, the very first thought when I started reading this was "Coffee?!" Healthfreak SEK drinks coffee?!" What happened to the green tea?

The immediate next thought was AWESOME!! My dream is to have a dedication in a law review article (not widely read, mind you) that is not just a thanks for research assistance. But a BOOK by the PRESIDENT of the MLA that will be WIDELY READ?! AWESOME!!

Your name, the long, academic-ish, tripartite thing that it is (seriously, I thought "Belle A. Lettre" was academic-sounding and pretentious enough), is now guaranteed to live on, and the black ciphers that spell your name will sit on the shelves of the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS.

TOO cool. Congratulations to you!

Or serial-killer-ish. When I recently reported a conversation with SEK to my wife, she said "What did I tell you about communicating with guys with three names over the innernets?"

I'm sure she was right, and I'll soon stop.

Congrats on receiving a acknowledgement as a grad student that isn't a cypher for "I stole your idea! You know, the one in your as yet unpublished paper for my seminar!" I've got one of those...

Oh, and thank you for not mentioning the "two n"s problem. (You know what I am talking about.) Honestly, I do make the most boneheaded, no-excuses-possible mistakes sometimes.

I still drink that during the day, but I open with a cup of coffee. Different kinds of caffeine, each contains, so I shock my system awake, then gently nudge it into gear. (Or, I could riff on S.Q.N.'s advice and go with the smelling salts, thrice daily ... which, now that I think about it, I'm not sure why more people don't do it. The Little Womedievalist does, in a way: she has a truly vast collection of perfume minis, which she smells throughout the day to "wake up her nose." I suppose the rest of her brain goes with it.)

No problem. Just means I have to change my name, that's all.

The alternative, however, is that you'd be talking to the designer of the "Porn Star" clothing line or some anonymous, probably shady, Hollywood grip. So really, I can't win.

Well, it's about time.

When I'm mentioned in the acknowledgements for Saul Kripke's next book, I'll let you know.

Shouldn't 'The really curious question, I think, is why the junior scholars and the graduate students are just as liberal—or, as George Will suggests, "more uniformly liberal"—than most of their senior colleagues who were hired thirty or forty years ago' read, in the middle, 'just as liberal as—or, as George Will suggests, "more uniformly liberal" than—…'?
