Monday Morning Miscellany

I'd like to think everyone visiting Quick Study is also aware of the group history blog Cliopatria (of which I have been a member for a while). But you never know. So now I will do some advertising.

Recently Manan Ahmed organized a symposium there to discuss an article by Sam Tanenhaus about why there are no longer major, influential historians of the calibre of Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. My response will probably annoy some people. Such is life.

Anyway, the symposium (with link to the original article) is here, and Tanenhaus's reply is here.

On a completely unrelated note, see my recent item at Crooked Timber regarding donuts, sex, and journalism.

As a longtime sucker for Krispy Kreme, I can testify that it ain't so.
