They didn't include THE picture to help illustrate the article? Sheesh.

But seriously, congratulations! Do they do an alumnus of the month, too, or just change the last letter(s) each month depending on the traditional gender identity of the recipient?

And would a transforming transgendered recipient be the "alumnon" of the month?

Bob Ellison said...

Is Judge Leonard B. Sand related to Judge Learned Hand?

God save the Queen!

AJ Lynch said...

Very well written and fair appraisal. Congrats of your award.

AllenS said...

Congratulations, Professor.

MadisonMan said...

Very cool. Congratulations.

k*thy said...

Congrats.

So, of all the places, how did you end up here?

edutcher said...

They didn't put up your graduation photo? Oh, well...

I see they describe the blog as conservative. You need to post something to re-establish your rep as the Conservatives' lovable liberal.

In any case, many congrats.

Since Ann is a lady, alumnus would be gender-contrary.

Irene said...

Lovely! Congratulations.

1jpb said...

So, can we expect a flood of NYU Law types flooding the blog, as they follow the link in that piece?

Althouse needs to capitalize by tempting the liberal tsunami w/ Amazon murch, portalized via the prof.

Quick get a post up libs need what they need, and of course, this.

J said...

Yay, Miss A.

"Gal Most likely to be indicted" ????

Quayle said...

It isn't clear whose fault the bad economy is?

It is clear: Alan Greenspan, and no person makes a more persuasive argument than Bill Fleckenstein.

Quayle said...

Kudos, otherwise.

Lincolntf said...

Very nice article. Congratulations.

Freeman Hunt said...

Congratulations! That's neat. And a very nice article.

LarryTheOlder said...

Congratulations, Ann

I blame Bush.

E.M. Davis said...

Congratulations, free of snark.

MadisonMan said...

I see you are the 4th Class of '81 member so nominated. The first three: Jesse Milan, Alan Klinger, Gwen Marcus aren't in academia.

PatCA said...

Great article, congrats.

rhhardin said...

An aluminarius is a dealer in alum.

shoutingthomas said...

Congratulations, Althouse.

I don't find it unusual that a woman with children excels.

When I got my MA at NYU, I was still raising two children.

Having children and family responsibilities focuses a person.

Triangle Man said...

Hey, great news! This will help soften the blow that the Governor just dealt to your compensation package.

JAL said...

Congrats Professor. ☺

Fred4Pres said...

Congratulations. Cream floats to the top!

Quayle said...

BTW, my Dad is a fellow alum from NYU.

He's a violet, just like you.

Phil 3:14 said...

Congrats. Do you have to contribute to the alma mater to get into the pool of candidates?

Robert said...

You're a conservative?

Who knew?

Leland said...

Does it include a great parking spot?

Is it an insult to get recognized during the shortest month of the year?

Whatever you get, it is well deserved (err, except perhaps recognized during a longer month...)

Ann Althouse said...

"This will help soften the blow that the Governor just dealt to your compensation package."

Blech. Don't rub it in. Please buy something through my Amazon portal to help assuage the pain.

MadisonMan said...

Just make sure you keep working, lest Walker go all Mubaraky on you and call out the National Guard.

PatHMV said...

edutcher, I'm sorry but did you not read the rest of my post? I think it makes it pretty clear that I'm quite familiar with Latin gender endings. I was asking, by reference to an alumnus TOO, whether the school picks a male and a female alum of the month, or whether there is merely one recipient and they use alumnus or alumna as appropriate. Seriously, I don't claim that it was all that funny, but it does actually make sense, and shows an actual familiarity with Latin declensions.

Bob_R said...

Congrats

David said...

“I’m perceived as conservative online because I tend to react to things that annoy me—and I’m surrounded by liberals. I’m sure that if I lived among conservatives, I’d be tweaking them instead,” she says with a laugh. “I’m the opposite of a chameleon, trying to blend into the environment. I don’t mind standing out.”

Diplomatic of you, Professor. Conservatives can be annoying. (Take Rush. He does it for a living.) But liberals really dominate the annoyance market with their unbeatable mix of ignorance-hypocracy-smugness-moral superiority--humorlessness. Plus they are bad at math.

Lem said...

Congratulations.. I hope it brings new readers/commenters.

J said...

They allow Latin to be used at Joo er Noo Yawk U? Impressive.

At least for alumni, perhaps. Memorize a few dozen latin proverbs and ...you too can be Johnny Robertsi.


Skinny skier a plus.

Triangle Man said...

If I use retail therapy to assuage my pain, I will be sure to use your Amazon link.

MamaM said...

“These experiences annealed me,”

YES! Anneal is a word I haven't heard used in a long time, but it fits wonderfully.

from Old English onlan, to set fire to, to kindle.

A process that happened to, as well as one which continues to happen around as a result.

I liked this line too: "Ann is one of the most creative people I know, so it comes as little surprise that her blog has proven so popular."

Undergirding intelligence, will, focus, and determination; vibrant creativity.

madawaskan said...

Annealed me?

Come on Althouse...jeebus.

What was that-word of the day on some Franzia box?

Too many jims said...

Think about it. Let's say you have a private elite north eastern law school. The entire universe and alums imagine graduates must be about 95% left-wing. Get one conservative alumna(even better than an Alumnus!) out there in the public eye — maybe with a blog that's supposedly right-wing — and that vague mental percentage might readjust to 80% or so. That's value! Treasure your house conservative, oh lefty law school!

madAsHell said...

Congrats!

I'm shooting for the cynic's award in this thread.....Can a request for a donation be far behind??

The public elementary school that I attended is now shaking down the parents of students. They ask the PTA to pony up $150,000 every fall, but they can't sweep the floors, nor maintain the school grounds.

Too many jims said...

Three points on my prior post, which I hope did not come accross as too much snark:

1. I can see a number of differences between this and what Prof. Reynolds was talking about. I am not saying they are equal. My mind just made a connection and the juxtaposition amused me.

2. A hearty congratulations.
3. Prof. Althouse's profile is the first thing that pops up in google for the search "NYU law school conservative". So even though I was kidding, I may have had a point.

Dese vagabond shoooz

right through the....uh huh..... very part of her--

Joo Yawk, Joo Yawk

Shanna said...

Congrats!

Almost Ali said...

“I’m good at finding things other people will want to talk about and setting up discussions...” says Ms. Althouse.

I have a slight disagreement with this statement. Except maybe in Wisconsin.

Trooper York said...

Wow this is almost as exciting as when Titus was selected as the Fruit of the Month.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Trooper York said...

J buddy you are beclowning yourself dude.

We already filled the Henry Ford Chair of Anti-Semitic Studies. Cedarford is Professor emeritus.

I thought you were gunning for the Lawrence O'Donnell Chair of Hating on the Latter Day Saints Chair in demonology.

Lincolntf said...

It was only a matter of time before J. played the "Joo" card. It's a staple in the braindead Liberal cupboard.

J said...

Actually yr mistaken, Lincolnski. Jewish people tend to be liberals. Except for a few phonies and/or pieces of dookie, such as Cantor, or maybe yr hero Kissinger.

And Im not a democrat or liberal, puerca. IM yr worst f-ing nightmare.

Lincolntf said...

You're a giant spider?

Shouting Thomas said...

And Im not a democrat or liberal, puerca. IM yr worst f-ing nightmare.

No, you're just a boring teenager.

Don't you have some other place to jack off?

J said...

No, yr mistaken Trooper Y as usual.

Saying Mike Bloomberg is a corrupt piece of garbage, or even using "Joo" in no way implies one supports Henry Ford style a-s-ism or....nazis.


I'm against religious zealots of all types. And ortho-jews are some of the most zealous, IMHE, hardly different than mormons or baptists or .....radical muslims. The PC code of blogland allows for calling baptists hicks, etc but say something like that about jewish dogmatists and people think yr chanting Mein Kampf.

It's just that ....most teabaggers now are whiny little PC frauds, even worse than the usual emotional liberal.

J said...

Hey Tommy. Step in a ring, satanist, 818 side, you little irrational piece of shit.

We'll see who's the jaggoff, phony, scum, chandala

Maguro said...

Uh oh, J played the jagoff card.

Don't tell me you're from Pittsburgh.

We already knew you were an incoherent, dope-smoking hipster douchebag.

But you're yinzer as well?

Good god.

William said...

Congratulations. I've been reading and enjoying your blog for 6 months or so now, and generally agree with you.

I particularly enjoy your observations about being a conservative/libertarian in a liberal university environment. I teach at Berkeley and consider myself the token Affirmative Action conservative.


Again, congratulations and keep on bloggin'

Dr. Berkeley.

J said...

Touched a nerve, Fagure.

In fact you don't know shit. I don't do drugs. And from Cal.

Yr gonna like my new posts, s*t*nist

YOU'RE THE SHIT OF the earth, teabuggers. That's you.SOTE. Mormons are scum. As are most protestant/zionist-masonic rackets. BushCo will be sinking into hell soon. Not real deep, but...dems the facts

Maguro said...

That's funny, I've never heard anyone say jagoff except in Pittsburgh.

Are you sure you're not this guy?

J said...

Bienvenidos a Perdido, Teabugger


AY ay AY!

Heh heh. Now, maybe try to bribe the proprietress, frat boys. This stoner's like ruinin' the par-tay

howzerdo said...

Very nicely done!

Salamandyr said...

J said...

IM yr worst f-ing nightmare.


A poor speller?

Lem said...

Heads up.

J is the guy that comes here so Sully gets to say the commenters here are hateful.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

I have it on good authority that J is a fat, pimply red-headed fourteen-year-old from Silver Springs whose doting parents home schooled him until he just became unmanageable. Now he sits in the dark before his iMac with his Mountain Dew and his Spanish-English dictionary and rags on everyone who is older, smarter, and better looking than he is, which is, well, everyone.

wv: gatta-- gatta gatta gatta. I just like saying gatta.

1jpb said...

It does seem odd that Althouse et. al. are taking the cuts, but others aren't even getting a little cut.

I'd assume that all gov departments should take, at least, a small hit. Maybe the Governor doesn't have the balls to do something where there may be some public/political blowback. Let's hope that national politicians are less lame when they, necessarily come for Althouse's (and the other near-geriatrics') health care entitlements.

knox said...

Your hair looks so red in that photo!

knox said...

LOL. Either that or Obama winning a 2nd term.

The cuts are also not proportional to the amount of state dollars funding the employee. Even state employees who fund their salaries (and benefits) wholly through external grants or contracts will have the same cuts to their compensation packages (about 7%).

Wow! Cool article.
Congratulations, and I wish you all the joy that you can wish.

J said...

Well, yr a lying bag of mierda, "Tyrone." AS are the little rumor spreaders

And don't trade on Pynchon's name, pendejo. TP's not perfect, but no teabagger.. He could sue you for just using his intellectual property.

TP detests protestant-mormon scum as much as anyone--thanatoids mostly (and not totally down with...ZionCo, unless he's completely sold out).

Yea this little prick tyrant is quite a piece of work. But he knows how to repay his donors. Heckuva job, Wisconsin. Have fun choking down that shit sandwich that you voted for.

Big Mike said...

May I add my congratulations, Professor? I didn't realize that you hold an endowed chair, so let me congratulate you -- however belatedly -- for that, too.

LOL.


That one got my biggest laugh too.

Congratulations!

dman said...

Nice picture

AJ Lynch said...

The goveror rightly excluded public safety workers from the reforms IMO. I would have done that as well.

Cops & firemen deserve the right to retire at an earlier age and have earned defined benefit pensions ala our military lifers. But the average state paper pusher can wait to age 65 to collect their pension.

Meade said...

"This leads me to say something about the relationship between [blogging] and power in more general terms. Like thousands of writers before me I have always believed that [blogging] is a quintessentially independent-minded and fundamentally counter-suggestive thing. It takes orders from no one but the individual self, and nothing but the imagination combining with circumstances. It exists to challenge orthodoxies rather than support them. [Blogging] is, among other things, a way of making us visit parts of ourselves and our world that are new to us, or of making us see familiar things in a new way, rather than a means of confirming what we already know."
- Andrew Motion 'Poetry can speak decisively to power'

I think when AA there was still afirmative action for legacies and grads of Harvard (Mainly XY)

garage mahal said...

Whoa to be a Madison Republican. Scott Walker just ain't into you. If you're a Waukesha Republican, you get a 1.7 billion Zoo Interchange. Yum Yum.

Ralph L said...

I’m sure that if I lived among conservatives, I’d be tweaking them instead
Meade, you'd better guard your nose and nipples. (the site indicator was briefly "blogger redirect") Cup optional.

nina said...

"The pain that will be infinitely worse if/when the great state of Wisconsin falls into bankruptcy."

Two revenue generating solutions come to mind, Meade: raise taxes, across the board, so all will slightly share in the burden, or increase the burden in a hefty way for a handful -- those who did not and probably will not vote for you.

Ah, politics.

Anyway, I meant to comment only on the NYU piece -- which I think is charming, fair and well deserving of congrats.

Meade said...

Thanks for your concern, Ralph. My conservative liberalism keeps her baffled almost as much as my liberal conservatism.

Chip Ahoy said...

Noice.

Meade said...

Hi nina,

I'm afraid your raising taxes solution has been tried and found wanting by a democratic majority of Wisconsin voters.

I agree with you that spending needs to be cut. Looks to me like the Republicans are starting with the handful who have been its biggest beneficiaries over the last 50 or so years. Sometimes we just have to give some back.

1jpb said...

Meade, I wouldn't worry about tweaking, if I were you.

I'd be more worried that Althouse would eventually become bored w// this con-lib/lib-con self-definition that you seem to flaunt, from time to time.

[BTW, I'm kidding because I'm sure that this exhibition of nothingness-mistaken-for-uniqueness/cleverness is not as big a part of your being as it seems to be based on your re-expression of it in comments.]

sunsong said...

Congratulations! Nice write-up on you, btw.

Meade said...

Oh no, 1jpb. Trust me: if you were me, you really would be worried about the tweaking.

PatCA said...

I also like what you said about the visual versus verbal. I started out an art major and over the years gravitated to writing because I too felt the visual was just not enough.
