March madness!?

Snow out back March 2007 Just a few days ago, the temperature climbed into the seventies, and today it snowed for most of the afternoon. This is utter madness!

And speaking of March madness, hats off to the Rams of Virginia Commonwealth University, who upset the Duke Blue Devils 79-77 last night. Located in downtown Richmond, VCU was the first institution at which I taught, and it has a lot of promise. They have blended the new architecture into the existing rowhouses and other buildings in a very harmonious way. I frown on the professionalization of collegiate sports, but I still say that athletic success can do wonders to motivate scholarly effort.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
