It's All Academic   www.davidflemingsite.com   


Welcome to "It's All Academic."  It started as a book (more information here) and evolved into more than 350 weekly blogs.  Many initially were about issues of higher education, but after 6 years, there is little new in that subject matter to discuss.  Perhaps I should now name the site "It's No Longer All Academic." 

As best as they can be, the blogs are organized by the archives in the menu.


Current blogs: Prayed Upon (More school massacres)

A bevy of recent blogs:
