In lieu of real content today, I'd like to direct your attention to a spate of recent writings on thought-provoking topics:
Today profgrrrl has been debating the merits of school hopping (i.e. taking a better/different job when it comes along even though one already has a tenure-track job elsewhere).
Dr. Crazy is currently working on a series of posts dealing with teaching strategies at "non-elite" institutions versus those that she philosophically things are ideal and those that she applied as a grad student teaching motivated students.
Dean Dad responded to Dr. Crazy's initial post with some more insights on teaching in context.

And, ending on a very light hearted note, science writer and super-mom Writer Chica is laughing her way through her day.
