Blogging is supposed to be something done regularly, dear readers, and I have been negligent. The last post was in May and . . . well, it is July. So, here is an alert that I am getting back to writing these, and I hope you will find what I say useful and enlightening -- and provocative. Look to this blog for the following kinds of pieces in the coming while:
1. Books about Chicago: Why Shimerians Ought to Read Them, and more!
2. Continuing reflection on who counts as a "Shimerian" -- Who would you include?
3. A guest post or two from Shimerians across the country -- and perhaps the world!
4. The return of Six Degrees of Shimer
And more. Of course, for a real sense of what is happening at Shimer, you ought, also, check out the Shimer website at www.shimer.edu and I urge you to stop by and submit news (have you written a book? Had a child or grandchild? Climbed a rock wall? Taken a new job? Run into other Shimerians and taken a picture?) or offer your help. Like all colleges, Shimer depends on your donations and support as a volunteer to ensure that our education is available for coming generations.
