So it turns out to be a good thing that I hadn't yet signed that adjuncting contract, because I just got an offer on a history lecturership. It's non tenure-track (par for the course these days) and involves teaching at a university's expansion campus, primarily for non-traditional students, to include military personnel. I'll be teaching lots of Western Civ I and II and World History I and II along with the occasional upper-division course. The best part of it is that it bumps me up into another tax bracket. So I'm officially calling an end to the Andrew-cession.
Of course, it's going to involve lots of teaching, and it's going to start much sooner than I'd anticipated. All of which is to say that most free time in my life is about to vanish into a morass of lecture writing and attempts to eke out maybe another publication before the next round of job and post-doc applications starts. So I won't be able to have lengthy, protracted political discussions, especially when I basically approve of most of what BHO is up to.
So I guess I'm kind of signing off until I have a handle on moving, writing lectures, and the like.
