They're baaaaaaaack! Fafblog, the funniest political blog ever to appear in the blogosphere, is back to regular posting after a long hiatus, with regular writers Fafnir, Giblets, and the Medium Lobster busily cranking out copy. From their front page:

This is a good blog. This is the best blog. This is a blog about God and the universe and those horrible screaming monkeys and that time I made a pizza out of an old tire and a can of whip cream. It is the Fafblog. -- Fafnir

If these guys sound familiar, it may be because Giblets is a regular commenter at The Edge of the American West.

Robert McHenry's review of John Burrow's A History of Histories contains some fascinating insights on presentism, teleology, and "whiggish history."

Ann Little has an important post about the "daylight divide" in academia -- between those who view teaching as just a "day job" and those who see it as part of their mission in life. For more information on how to become a member of the second group, see the website of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in History, based at Indiana University (n.b.: my university).

What's on your mind?
