Today is kind of the first day of summer. The last class was yesterday. I've still got two exams to write (and, later, grade) and a big presentation to prepare, but the discipline of appearing in a particular place at a particular time is over, and that's a luxurious new freedom. Though I do always enjoy getting back to classes too, it's also always a pleasure to reach a break. So I'm going to spend an extra hour or so reading the paper -- which for some reason is extra-long today, padded with extra sections on The Arts, House & Home, and Styles.
Don't miss my big Camille Paglia post from last night -- which has a substantial update written this morning.
