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 400 weekly blogs.  Many initially were about issues of higher education, but after 6 years, there is little new in that subject matter to discuss, so I digress more often into social or personal topics. 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: Scooby-Doo And The Campus Kelpie (Abandoned colleges lead to mystery)

I At The Front Of Inertia (Self-doubts)

Leftovers (Random pieces of blogs merged into one)

Namecheck Please! (If academics namechecked like musicians)

A bevy of recent blogs:

For Good (God) (Midterm election ruminations)

Officer Blues (On the proliferation of chief officers in academia)

Elegy For Love (Self-explanatory)

Your Place In Hell (Poem on the despicable people in the world)

Verbalizing (Needless turning of nouns into verbs)

It's Probably Nothing & Ashamed Of The Story I Told (On assuming the worst)

Never SWOT The Dog (Loose dogs & strategic planning)

Low Sink, Oh (The depths we seem to sink in politics these days)

Spiral-Bound (Which way do we go when the storms swirl)

Get A Leg Up (More dog research to ponder)

Mercy Mercy Me (The Academy) (The ruthless world of college admissions)

Making The Cut (When a university cuts programs)

An Empty Room (Reliving memories while waiting for your parents' house to sell)
