Comrade McLennan here. To my dozen or so faithful readers on this blog, I bid you hearty greetings after a long, long interval.
2011 was an insane year. The parabola dipped pretty low, but the year was seized. I travelled extensively, defended my dissertation, forgot how to play guitar, and had an amazing time teaching. And yes I'm still reading books and caring about politics. So expect me back, with a sporadic vengeance!
