- Many thanks to Michael and David for their engaging guest posts during my absence!
- The latest Philosophers' Carnival is here.
- Apparently the PGR / Leiter rankings may not always show up on the first page of a google search for "Brian Leiter". That's a bit inconvenient for people searching for this information, so if you want to help out, feel free to "googlebomb" the name and link as follows: Brian Leiter.
- I'm home! My whirlwind tour of America was quite an experience. There wasn't time to see much besides the universities, though I did get to see a bit of New York City and the (almost as tall!) Saguaro cactii in the Arizona desert. Best of all, I met some really wonderful people -- faculty, grad students, and fellow prospectives -- everywhere I went.
(I only wish I hadn't been so exhausted, since that made things very difficult at times! I wasn't able to meet as many people as I'd been hoping to, and with those I did... well, hopefully no-one took it personally if I seemed a bit 'out of it' at times. I hadn't expected that -- it was quite disconcerting. But oh well, at least I managed to absorb lots of information and get a feel for each place during my visit, which was the main purpose, I guess.)
