So loyal readers, your humble narrator brings you greetings and a new look for the uncensored voice of the faculty. As I believe the only constant is change, I thought a new presentation would be appropriate. Be forewarned however that a more pleasing aesthetic will not soften the presentation of the state of affairs of the university. To the contrary and more to follow on that score. Be safe in the knowledge that faculty will continue to discuss, deliberate, debate, dissent and disabuse various and sundry of all manner of ill conceived ideas about the nature of the Academy and bring to our discussion resonant themes and ideas consistent with being a doctoral degree granting institution.
