Call it a mid-life jam in my academic blogging life, but I say it is just a simple change. A former student of mine suggested a change from Proletarian to The Professor, illustrating a more accurate depiction of the blog. She stated that I am more of the Bourgeoisie than I am of the proletariat. Thus I took the suggestion and changed the name and look. She also noted that The Proletarian was not radical nor far enough to the left to justify the title. I agree. According to Sweeney (who recently changed her blogsome), I dress, talk, and behave like a conservative Republican. Do not fear, I am not. I do think the title fits me and my blog well. I have also created a second blog that will get far less attention than this one; it is called Running Man — a blog to trace my training and preparation for future runs and races.
