More than a few people have accused me of trying to have it both ways.
1. Pretending to be some outrageous fictional character, writing in a voice that has no responsibilities for consequences.
2. Being in fact an indentifiable academic administrator at a major research university
For reasons I am not going to make specific, I am now convinced that the critics were right, all along. I can't have it both ways.
So...let's forget the whole thing. I will post here only those things that I am willing to stand behind, and believe, in my actual life as Mike Munger, Duke Professor. Since I don't think I have anything interesting to say, in a blog at least, in that voice I don't expect any further blogging on this URL.
And, I'll start an anonymous blog where I can rant with impunity.
