EGSA Digest 1.16.15

Dear EGSA,

Another year, another semester, another digest for you to heed or disregard at your peril. That’s right. Peril. There will be no more fooling around.

No more than usual, anyway.

Also, there will be no formatting, because webmail disdains my current device and denies me formatting. Let’s get to it.
