Inside this issue: Oodles of information and more assassination!
The semester is starting to swing into gear now as evidenced by the plenteous announcements in this issue, and for some of us, the increasing earnestness of the semester might also be starting to be evidenced by plenteous quantities of work. But still we are in the relatively easy-sailing portion of the semester, so I’ll be holding off on encouraging animal analogies for a while yet. Really, I don’t have anything in particular to say in this little first page of the Digest today, but I feel obligated to do so by my own self-imposed tradition. In fact, I am reminded of the title of an upcoming lecture in rhetoric (see announcement be-low), which is entitled “To Speak, Saying Nothing?” If the question in that title were directed at me and this introduction, my answer would be yes. In short, if you haven’t done so yet, you should just skip this and jump right to the announcements.
Sort of sincerely,
EGSA Secretary (a.k.a. Mister Secretary Sir, a.k.a. Minister of Misinformation)
