Yesterday, I received page proofs for an article I wrote 3-4 years ago (but which saw its first incarnation as a paper at a conference five years ago in--believe it or not--Decatur, IL). Thank the gods, I thought. It's finally going to see the light of day. (I'm sure the editors of the book, too, are thanking the gods.) And as I was proofreading it, I discovered that I had in fact mentioned (though not cited) John Dewey. So there you go. I *did* make use of Dewey. In some fashion.
And today, in my inbox: an invitation to Cs. I'll be talking about argument hope, something I blogged about last spring.
So it all comes around. (Or something equally wise and ponderous.) Congrats to those who've also been invited. See you in New York.
