K.C. Johnson is critical of  Duke professors' efforts to justify the contemptible behavior of the Gang of 88 in the Lacrosse case outrage .  He's always worth reading, but, a professor himself, the first graph of his post is a wicked but accurate description of what is going on these days in academia:

Wahneema Lubiano, whose last scholarly publication was entitled "Interview with Wahneema Lubiano," recently took a break from her two "forthcoming" manuscripts, Like Being Mugged by a Metaphor and Messing with the Machine. Both of these manuscripts, it's worth remembering, have now been "forthcoming" -- a designation that normally means completed and under contract -- for eleven years.
