A very happy 200th post—and 45th birthday, too—to my friend Scott McLemee, a gentleman and scholar who honors both categories by belonging, iconoclastically and steadfastly, to both of them.


Thanks very much for the notice, Emily. But it may bear mentioning that I am not, in fact, 200 years old, though it certainly feels like it sometimes.

No good birthday wish goes unpunished, eh? I was going for something there, but the grammar’s all wrong. Well, you’ve earned the right to annotate!
