I hate putting up lazy link threads, but I was driving all day, am tired, and have a lot of links I want to deal with. So my apologies.

In other news, I happened to visit campus for the first time since the end of June (God bless sabbatical!) and discovered an anonymous reader had sent me a beautiful kitchen knife and a copy of one of the recent Library of America Mary McCarthy volumes.

So thanks to all who add a bit to our lives for making this happen.
