>Probably everyone who reads my blog already reads Michael Bérubé, but just in case you haven’t been there yet today, he has assigned this weekend’s “homework” reading: a fantastic, 5000-word post on academic freedom. Since I seem to be unable to manage my time well enough to do a substantive post on anything myself, I’m sending you there.
Btw, you might notice that the first link he has (wherein he claims he does not read “at a ‘lightening pace,’ as some people claim”) I am the “some people.” But that’s not why I’m sending you there. I mean, if I wanted you to end up back here, why would I send you away? Besides, as Boyfriend points out, he’s just mocking me. [Edited to add: perhaps “ribbing” is a better word here than “mocking.”] Or rather, since the link he gives (which I’ve now repeated here) is all about him — in fact, the post title in question is “Go to Bérubé’s blog right now” — he’s not leading anyone to anything I have to say, really, but just to more of him. And since my link to him leads you to a link back to me which leads you to a link all about him maybe it was all about Bérubé anyway.
Let’s face it: we are all Bérubé’s puppets. Now what are you still doing here — you have a reading assignment! Bérubé speaks; you listen!
