Academic Confetti: contributions from campus intellectuals

I love being a college professor for a lot of reasons, one of which is that we get three months off in the summer, six weeks in the winter, and ten days in the spring. Off from teaching and committee work, that is, but not from our jobs. We are "expected" to devote about half of our time to research and writing (or creative equivalents in artistic fields), and most of that gets done when we are not fully occupied with teaching.
