after a fun day with the cool people of stanford, i'm waiting on the SFO to MSP redeye flight. the debate with larry bobo seemed to go pretty well, though we had some difficulty identifying points of contention or disagreement (perhaps one of us should have called for greater racialized mass incarceration, just to stir the pot. maybe next time).
we're scheduled to depart at 12:30 and arrive at 6 central time, so i'm hoping to get a little sleep on the plane. it is a full flight and i'm back in steerage, so this might be overly optimistic. no big deal, though. i've got a full day tomorrow, but nothing requiring great alertness: a delinquency final exam at 10:30, sara wakefield's big graduation ceremony at 1, and a party to celebrate the promotions of kathy hull, erin kelly, and penny edgell at 4. as long as i don't fall asleep onstage at graduation and resist the urge to make sleep-deprived speeches at these events, it should make for a fun, if somewhat punchy, conclusion to the academic year.
