Ancrene Wiseass

A would-be medievalist holds forth on academia, teaching, gender politics, blogging, pop culture, critters, and whatever else comes her way.

Yes, this really is yet another blog by a disillusioned grad student. I sympathize, but that's just the way it has to be. For hints as to what my bizarre alias means, click here and here and, if needed, here and here. To get a sense of what I'm up to, feel free to check out the sections called "Toward a Wiseass Creed" and "Showings: Some Introductory Wiseassery" in my main blog's left-hand sidebar. Please be aware that spamming, harassing, or otherwise obnoxious comments will be deleted and traced.

A whiff of birdshot

You know, I'm kinda tempted to join in on making fun of Dick Cheney's recent--ahem--misfire. But that would be like shooting fish in a barrel. Or maybe even like shooting pen-raised birds in an exclusive hunting club.

And Michael Bèrubè and Tom Burka already did a better job than I could, anyway.
