I'm done with this blog.

I'm still going to be posting at the comic book blog, but there are three reasons why I don't want to continue this blog:

1. Dissertation. That speaks for itself. It needs to get done.

2. I'm sick of partisan bickering, and I've decided blogs like this were I complain about stuff is not part of the solution - instead it just feeds the flames.

3. I've moved on, and have decided I could care less if I get a teaching job at a college or university, because I've decided the entire system is so flawed as to be laughable. Instead, I'm going to pursue other career options for an PhD in English. Well, there may not be many, but I'm a reasonably resourceful guy, so I figure I can do it. And I may still wind up as a professor eventually.

I stumbled across this site today and spent some time reading it. I'm glad you haven't taken it down and hope that you will one day take the time to reread your posts in order. You didn't get to that last post by mistake and fortunately there are hints that your voice will be heard at other locations.

A fellow traveler.
I'm sorry I found this blog so late. I too am an English grad going for her PhD, and it's hard to hold conservative values and stand in a sea of liberal ideology where the "c" word is capitalism and Marx is the only true god.

Hope you're doing well, wherever you ended up! English departments could use a little more balance, so I hope other conservatives don't shy away from pursuing liberal arts degrees!
