Someone on my flist linked to this Craig's List ad but I can't remember who. It makes me ... I don't know. It makes me feel tired.
I am looking to hire someone with a PhD in Medieval History, or studying towards one, to ghostwrite a major, high-quality research project (40000-50000 words), based on both primary and secondary sources (I will provide electronic access/library card). The candidate should be able to prove that he/she has the required credentials and research experience (not necessarily reveal identity, there are other ways to prove one's education). They must read Latin and be available to dedicate to the project at least 500 hours (probably less if you specialize in the particular area of the field). Pay is negotiable, but in the general range of regular graduate student/post-doc earnings. Please write only if you are qualified, with your compensation expectations.
This is on CBC, and presented by Myrna Kostash, who I am unfamiliar with. The Incident at Seven Oaks

On June 19, 1816, near the Red River settlement, twenty-eight armed settlers marched out from Fort Douglas and exchanged fire with seventy armed and mounted Métis traders and hunters. Myrna Kostash exhumes historical memory to reveal multiple meanings of the incident at Seven Oaks.

I.e., shut up, suck it up; I've other phone calls to take. A chair, any chair, my chair is not the price for my independence, it is my independence. And this one isn't measuring up.
capriuni has a PSA with Transcript about Service Animal Etiquette.
Beau Sia has done an interesting response to Alexandra Wallace's rant about too many Asian people at UCLA. Madame Thursday on Tumblr has done a transcript of the video.
It’s so hard maintaining fitting in when these Asian people clearly aren’t. They’re so not the TV I’ve seen, so not the stories I’ve read, so not my experience where I’m from, and I’m letting their existence jeopardize my idea of the world and I don’t like it.
