It's more an update on Janet. She's been getting her applications in for grad school. Just a few minutes ago we submitted her application to NC State for this fall. The Public History program would be lucky to have her, don't you think? Anyone reading this should send her an email telling her that you think she's sure to get in and will make an excellent grad student. All that's left to do is make sure her last recommender gets his act together, and then she has to get her transcripts and writing samples squared away. After that, she can sit back and wait for them to send her a letter begging for her presence in their program so they can possibly gain some measure of greatness simply by having her nearby.
