Highlights from Atlanta

I enjoyed my week in Atlanta while attending the TESOL 2019 conference, and I learned that Waffle House must serve something there it doesn't serve anywhere else.

Read “Applied Linguistics” in this month’s Analog Science Fiction and Fact

If you’re an applied linguist and you enjoy science fiction, you might want to check out this month’s issue of Analog: Science Fiction and Fact.

And shape-shifting aliens on alien prison planets, so that’s cool, too!

How much smoke before she’ll call it a fire then?

"‘I’m not for impeachment,’ Pelosi says, potentially roiling fellow Democrats" https://a.msn.com/r/2/BBUDZTQ?m=en-us&referrerID= "... impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path because it divides the country. What could be more compelling than collusion with enemies, tax evasion, or... Continue Reading →
