UPDATE: A reader points out that Professor Althouse (who, accordingly to the AALS Directory, is 55 years old) has responded to my merely calling attention to this debate by calling me a "nerd." Oh goodness. My 5th-grader was also called a "nerd" at school the other day. This will help us bond.
(As members of the Caron Blog Empire know, we get paid by the number of visits, so this Update is admittedly a cynical attempt on my part to get Professor Althouse to link here again.)
AND A FINAL ONE: Thanks to one of my students for pointing out that in the comments Professor Althouse has gone a step further, and called me a "jackass." Oh goodness, again! A surprising choice of language from someone who, in the past, was quite prissy about the use of such words.
