    I was talking about the end of your last post. Aimed at me? Not particularly accurate based on my posts and seems intended to raise a crabby partisan response. We're having an interesting...

    Larkspur, put down your defensiveness for a sec. This isn't a liberal or a conservative thing, this is a methodology thing.

    The mentoring I'm talking about is more specialized. Things like -- how to give a good job talk and how to rock your teaching demo effectively. Some advisors -- for this thread, that would be the...

    They actually measured it three ways: per capita, family, and household incomes. And there's a very good reason they didn't separate out by cost of living. The federal measure of poverty (income less...

    The academic interview is such a specialized (and narrow) beast, that I don't think I've ever seen a book on how to rock one of those. That is not to say that a lot of the stuff that's applicable...

    It's actually really good advice for any job seeker, to be honest.

    Looks like it's in the American Spectator, the Washington Free Beacon, and a variety of other conservative outlets. Word for word in all of them, I might add, so that it's impossible to tell what the...

    I don't disagree with that point either, JSwan. :)

    I've been enjoying your perspective (and got a kick out of you being lumped in with us lefties).
