but that was my plan b!

As has been mentioned elsewhere, I recently provided to comfort to at least one graduate student by clarifying that life, in fact, does not end when academics suffer career setbacks. Although not specifically about tenure, another example was discovered in a recent trip to Borders: a guy who went to graduate school with me at Indiana--and who initially had trouble finding any tenure-track position upon leaving graduate school--has not just gotten that settled but is currently living my dream: he has a couple of mystery novels that have been published by real presses and sufficiently successful that you can pick up one at your local (or at least my local) Borders.
