My Daily Me

These are the three things that caught my eye during a 5 minute scroll through Twitter this afternoon, while very definitely not working: George Steiner reviewing a French book about American theory-wars about French Theory – Steiner is a smart grump on these matters; an essay on book hoarding [they aren’t just objects, they are pieces of one’s mind]; and Christopher Newfield reflecting on the ongoing unmaking of the Public University in the USA. I think I need a hobby.
