My posts about Magritte seem to be the single draw for this site -- at least, they seem to be the only way that people stumble here through Google. (Well, one person got here by searching for 'why I like this work' -- about which I feel I can (and maybe eventually will) say something, since, as with most academics, I have a high degree of job satisfaction -- but even that only found a sentence from my post on L'homme au journal.) Well, partially this is just a hello to the visitors and a brief post to continue the illusion that this blog is not entirely dead; but also I do hope that some of you visitors will leave your thoughts -- I don't often get an opportunity to discuss Magritte with other admirers, and it would be a pleasure to be able to do so.

Damn it!

Now Death to the Extremist, too. Steven Cloud, stay strong!

UPDATE 25 April 2007. No, Stephen Cloud, no! Don't move! You and I both know that this will be the beginning of the end!
