My excuse this time

This has been a particularly bad summer for blogging.  I got overwhelmed with a variety of projects, and perhaps more importantly, I was having some trouble with the blog software.  Nonetheless, with the semester underway and my workload (somewhat) under control, I'm committed to resuming the old schedule.  I'll try to post twice a week this fall.  I have a few recent gifts that I'll try to share and we'll see about tracking down some faculty stories.  The Class of 1960 deserves a little semi-centennial recap before they visit at Homecoming as well.  Oh, and I wrote a book, so I'll share some about what's happening with that.
