Last night was the kick-off event for my grad-school program’s alumni association. I used my new video camera to ask attendees about their favorite memories from the year-long program—some shared that they’d met their future husbands/wives/fiancees in the program; others shared stories about running to their faculty advisers’ offices to drop off their theses, minutes before they were due. And some people chose to talk about the social-science theorist that they’d most want to hang out with today: Goffman, Marx, Durkheim (“because structural functionalism is awesome”). 
But unfortunately, there’s no sound to go along with the video. I forgot to flip the mike switch to “on.”

Writing about improv group Octavarius's October 9 show, The Trial of the O’Leary Cow, for Gapers Block, on the 140th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire. Audience members appeared to have come prepared with law books to help them in the proceedings.
