Dear Readers explains. Short answer: The Chronicle of Higher Education bought the assets of Lingua Franca et al. in bankruptcy court; no word on whether that will resume publication.

Scientists compile a list of the world’s funniest jokes, and not one of them is Jewish. It raises a heartbreaking question: Are Jews still funny?

How can anyone not love a site with stories like that?

We understand that you, Chronicle of Higher Education, want us to say certain things. We have said that we bought Arts and Letters Daily like a truck filled with Pork Scientists. That is important to you. Oh crap...i've got nothing

Seriously, it's great to be out of tune again. One of my favorite A&LD linka here by Simon Blackburn. Essays in quasi-realism indeed!

Those links look...strange.

I see that they're still kissing conservative pundit ass. How original.

Onionesque or not, strange-looking links or not, conservative pundit ass-kissing aside, pork scientist-filled truck metaphors aside, it's great to have the old gal back.

MEFI alone keeps me busy for hours a day. This site will absorb the rest of my free time. Thanks a ton for the link.
