WU Glory: Funhouse Stripper Prof of the Year; Different Prof talks Concrete

The Oregonian has the news that community radio maven, Funhouse Stripper, and, oh yeah, Willametter Prof, Karen Holman, has been named Oregon Professor of the Year.

That's pretty great! A tip of the pint.

In other news, in a scrumptious bit of irony, Willamette University has scheduled a talk for tonight: "Technological Innovation in Imperial Rome: What Can Ancient Concrete Tell Us About Roman Society?"

We propose a similar talk: Technological Failure in Post-Industrial America: What can Modern Concrete Tell us about Marion County Society?

Hopefully the County Commissioners will be in attendance...
