Posting frequency


I have a feeling these posts will be further and further apart. As I look for jobs and try to finish the dissertation "thing," I fear that I will not devote as much time to extracurricular activities.

I just got back from DC. NSF meeting. Posting a photo of the view of the Jefferson Memorial across the tidal pond, with some cherry trees in bloom. Jefferson is my favorite prez, even if he was a slave owning aristocrat from Virginia.

DC was strange. I was surprised at how disappointed I was. The lawns all looked a bit sad, full of crab grass and goose poop. The war memorials now dominate the landscape. We remember our wars, but we don't have grand monuments on the Mall to the constitution, the declaration of independence, emancipation, woman's right to vote...
