@garethhinds is the author-illustrator of some of my favourite classic graphic novels in my library collection like the acclaimed Beowulf & The Odyssey (a must buy!)  and @neilhimself Gaiman is another fav, rock-star author-illustrator, school library & librarian champion, & Dr. Who guest writer!


Put them both in the same small theatre in Cambridge Mass, add in the Pirates of Penzance and WHAMMY! You get a great story - with sketches!

Hey, you older, tenured profs, you’re being greedy and selfish, and your students would be better off if you left.
GwynethJones's insight:

Are professors and teachers getting too old?

Why do we hold on so long?


Is it because ....according to Dave Hickey:


"The problem with teaching is that it offers an ongoing sense of redemption. In the real world, which you have now re-entered, if you muck up, there are consequences. In the university, you get a new semester to pretend nothing bad ever happened."
