This stands for Bullets of Random Crap:

  • While flipping through the channels, I caught a bit of Hardball. I was quite surprised to hear former senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) say of abortion, "I've always thought that women should have this right, and furthermore, I don't even think men should be allowed to vote on it." Geezalou, that is downright radical feminist!
  • Okay, this is new to me: Blogger Reaction to Libby's Indictment, links to posts collected by The New York Times. I wonder if they're going to start doing this for other stories? Or if they're thinking about following the Washington Post's and Newsweek's lead and displaying Technorati's data to direct readers to posts about given stories?
  • I got a haircut today, and I am liking it a lot. Those bangs are almost grown out.
  • I'm on a couple of curriculum development committees this semester, and I have a new appreciation for what administrators have to do. Curriculum development is a BIG job -- making decisions about majors, enrollment minimums, minors, tracks, specialties, having to balance research, teaching, and the needs of students and of future employers of students, asking questions like, "What kind of student do we want to produce?" and then having to answer them and come up with a plan on how to get there, dealing with diverse levels of student preparedness and having to take into account courses taken at other institutions in the case of transfer students, etc., etc., etc.
  • The job search is immensely stressful. Let's just leave it at that.
  • I'm going to watch Wanda Sykes: Tongue Untied now. It's comfort TV (see above). You should, if you haven't already, listen to her Crank Yankers phone calls.
