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)
