Calm before the storm

Over the years, I have noticed that we often have an unusually warm (for the season) night before a snowstorm. It's still August, of course, but I have been on campus the last two days, and that is the way it felt. I go to meetings, clean my office, collect books, etc., all knowing that next week the storm will be here.

The best part so far was a rock-'em, sock-'em speech by Roger Bowen, general secretary of the American Association of University Professors, who came all the way from Washington, D.C., to speak on defending academic freedom (and its limits and responsibilities).

Meanwhile, Jason Pitzl-Waters has put together the first Carnival of the Pagans or Pagan Carnival, whichever term you prefer, and I hope it's not the last. Stop by the Wildhunt Blog and send him your suggestions from the Pagan blogosphere.
