Hero Worship

It no surprise to anyone who's read this blog for the past year that Dan Drezner is one of my blogging heroes. An unabashed geek, Dan's expert foreign policy and international economics contributions were top notch. Add a Salma Hayek homage into the mix and that pretty much sums up why I've been such a regular follower of Dan's work. Well it seems Dan's employer, the University of Chicago, ultimately decided to reject Dan's application for tenure as a political science professor. A sad, sad day indeed. Well Dan, if you're interested, I'm sure we can convince some of the wonderful folks at the University of Virginia politics department to open up a spot for you. I'd like to think I have at least some residual influence as an ex-"faculty" member.
