it's actually every tuesday though :)

Wow, I guess that's why I never noticed... I like the regular L&O more than SVU. Can't wait for that to be my life! ;)

Depends on my mood.  I think the SVU's been extremely consistent during its complete tenure.  However, the original has peeks and valleys.  The top original L&O's are better than SVU, but I think SVU typically is better though.

I'll have to keep that in mind when considering Duke :)

I'm sure Durham's much better heated. It gets colder there than here.

Had to brush off a foot of snow off my car this morning and it took me twice as long to get to work. Duke sounds very nice today, PJC.

I need to find a way to live even farther south.  It's too cold here.

Whatever! I'm sure it gets down to... the 50s?

We have a couple days of between 20 and 30 degrees.  It was terrible when I lived in an old house.  Old houses around here aren't really built to put up with cold weather.  I just had two little wall space heaters.  When it gets below 35, they do *nothing*.  One night I pushed my couch in front of the heater and slept 1 foot in front of it.  I could have turned it off and it literally wouldn't have been any colder.

I'm feeling highly unmotivated at work today.  Just wanted to say hi and good luck on finals!

Nice to see a new face around here.  Why don't you tell us a bit about yourself

Reading Minima Moralia by Theodor Adorno. Confined to my own mind for the past few months. I've become especially myopic in the absence of school or reasoned debate.

Any thoughts from the Political Theorists? PJC?

I'm not really that much of a classical political theorist.  While of course I have to know the big names and some others who I find interesting, my forte focus isn't really classical political theory.

Ah.. that's too bad.

I was always surprised how many "Political Scientists" actually detest Political Theory. I had several TAs in the past who would alway grumble about theory. Political Science has its origins in Philosophy. It's a bit like a Physicist hating math.

I completely agree with you.  At least once a semester I discuss the importance of political theory and how it influences modern theory.  While I'm only somewhat well versed in it, I completely agree that it's essential and ignoring does one a disservice.  Nearly all modern theory, in some way, is derived from some theoretical interpretation of human nature and organization.  I always asked the class for an argument for and against the death penalty because people don't cite stats, they always theorize about the morality of the institution.  Political science is about theory - so ignoring classical theory and the foundation of political theory makes one less of a political scientist.
