The blogging will not stop

Thrilling news! I have lined up a sucker friend and colleague to take over for me for the rest of this week and all of next! Her name is Barbara Kiviat (you can read her recent Time articles here). She’s younger than me and smarter than me and works harder than me, and, most importantly, she’s a one-time recipient of a Johns Hopkins Provost’s Undergraduate Research Award for a study titled “Suburbanizing Small Town, U.S.A.: The Meta-Myth of Salisbury, Md.” (Just found that on the Google.)

It is true that, on the crucial subjects of Danish taxation and Dutch pop culture, Barbara’s level of expertise is, shall we say, less than impressive. But don’t be too hard on her for that.

She’s planning to start Thursday. Enjoy!
