welcome! jeremy freese is a professor in sociology at northwestern university. he finds blogging to be a good diversion from insomnia and a far better use of time than television.
Better than realizing that someone very fond of you is not actually very fond of you.
I'm not sure if this is a personal statement, or a thinly veiled reference to the journal article review process.
... that doesn't sound good.... but we've all had these moments at one time or another. Down with self-doubt! Hold your head up high, and bask in the fondness of all of your dedicated readers and those people who will actually be seen doing karaoke with you!
It is revolting to see people having sport with abused children ( see the reference in the last Blog entry to Polish feral children). Prof. Freese I feel has a professional obligation to stop this. Irregardless, anyone of Polish descent can hold their heads high over the astounding progress made by Poland in their delivery of Social Services to the little ones of their society, despite having the highest incident of feral children on record. It bodes well for Poland that the last such unfortunate occurance took place in May of 1996 when a young feral boy was pulled from a crawlspace in an abaondoned farm house near the village of Sobiochy near the Russian border. A woodsman had seen a small, scruffy child crawling under an abandoned house and promptly reported it to the authorities. Constables from nearby Wegorzewo quickly responded. When they shined their flashlights under the house, they saw a small boy cowering in the corner. They could not coax him out so proceeded in. Once in, the official report states "like one possessed he rushed about on hands and knees, yowling". He was cornered and when one of the constables had the tip of a finger bitten off, they devised a snare-like devise, snagged him then wrapped him in a small tarp."Breath was fetid, hair matted" the report said.Locals and gawkers had converged on the farmstead when word got out that a child was trapped under a house. In accordance with Polish custom, a communal nickname is given to any child in crisis. Casimir was the name given to this wretched child. The crowd's elation however turned sour when one of the men emerged from the crawl space to report that the remains of 39 cats have been discoverd with the bones showing gnaw marks. One fresh cat carcass was found near the entrance with a piece of stout cord lying next to it. The Constables concluded that little Casimir would lure the cats into the crawl space, use the cord for a garrot, then consume them. A number of piles of chewed cabbage stalks and potato rinds were also found. Given the length of his hair and the number of stalks and rinds observed, he was estimated to be 5 years of age. Little Casimir was quietly taken to the provincial orphanage in Gdansk, where he remains. He went passively, and it was believed the tarp they had him wrapped in provided the darkness he was accustomed to.In 1997, the newspaper in Wegoerzewo reported that little Casimir had been seen at the annual Singing For Soup fest sponsored by the orphanage in Gdansk, where he was the lead Soprano in the children's choir. His reclamation continues today, and the readers can see for themselves that my initial statement about Polish progress in the area of Social Services rings true.
The suspense is killing me. When will JFW spring back to life? CNN.com is getting boring.
Yeah - where did he run off to?
What is the probability that he has been abducted? I would give it a .14 that he has been, but by who? His readers should at least give him the benefit of the doubt on this - show some faith, that at least you have an opinion on who may have nabbed himPersonally I think some defrocked priests are holding him in some musty basement, but for what reasons I'm not yet sure of
