And there was great rejoicing ....

Michigan LSA Dean Andrew Martin, bane of the Michigan economics department, is leaving!

I am told that the party in Lorch Hall will continue until his departure in early November.

Movie: Dead Pool 2

The first Dead Pool is one of my favorite comic books movies ever. The second one is more of the same, and also clearly aiming to start a new franchise.

The NYT review captures it well, though marred by some dopey (and unnecessary) politics at the end.

Thinking about this will help you to clarify your notion of weirdness.

Hat tip (on the article and the question): Charlie Brown
