I wanted to say thanks to the people who expressed sympathy, support, and encouragement in the comments to my recent post on being out of the hunt. I am, obviously, pretty bummed out. But as I say, I'm still getting a lot out of professional philosophy and I'm not at all ready to throw in the towel yet. I still find teaching to be highly rewarding, I still enjoy the writing and research I'm doing and feel that the project I'm engaged in is interesting and worthwhile, and I still find this blog to be a rewarding experience--I feel like we're doing some good here, and I'm proud to be a Smoker.
So anyways, I wanted to take a moment to say 'thanks and good luck' to all our readers. So here goes:
To all our readers: thanks and good luck!
