Cripes, I haven't posted here in a week.
Rensslaer: Thanks, Renss! I have to find their thoughts fascinating, since I'm getting into the strategic studies field.
Stuyvesant: No problem.
My silence is due to a sudden barrage of work. I was already finishing up a number of projects, including final touches to revising article and preparing for a move to DC on Monday (and a third big and tedious thing as well), when suddenly out of the blue came the proposal from one of my professors that I should consider putting together a PhD application since there are studentships available and they don't have any good candidates this year. Well...goddamn. Throwing together a PhD proposal is a bit of work. Hopefully I'll finish up this last update over the weekend, as I plan to have a lot of things done by then so maybe I'll have some time.
