But folks from here? Miserians?
What are the chances that I really want to go to a secluded bar in Kalamazoo to meet Strelnikov, who I imagine might have gun residue on his hands. Or Bubba, who I imagine I'd have to bail out of jail before we met up at all?
Or Cal, who would be coming straight from some golf course, and therefore a Republican!
I support the meeting up of people. I see other academic blogs do it. Go for it. Do it right. Enjoy the company.
But I can't go. I'm not as interesting in person as I am on the blog - a low bar to be sure. Just ask my wife. She doesn't want to meetup with me most days anyway.
Now if Katie were going to be there, well I'd like to go just to stick pins in her, but otherwise, I'll wait - online - for a report.
