I think Dr. V should have called her post “Milling Against the grain at a regional, public, non-flagship university these days’. But maybe that’s just me. Anyway, her tale of reactions to Chaucer has a very Clueless-in-flyover-country thing going on. ("Well, I remember Mel Gibson accurately, and he didn’t say that. That Polonius guy did.” I’m sure you remember.)

And I love your alternate title for my post. Damn-- where were you when I was lacking all inspiration for titles?
