In coming days and weeks, I will write on the following items:
1. A book on teaching by Marc Edmundson. Why, you might ask, a book on teaching? Hmmm.
2. Neil Gaiman's graduation address to the Philadelphia Institute for the Arts -- because it has a lot of things to say to all of us, including college presidents.
3. Shimeriana of various sorts, including the many ways that it resonates with Shimer to be housed in a Mies van der Rohe building.
4. Much else -- some authored by others!
