Race To The Bottom

Remember the old days when Academics were too snobby to pay attention to pop culture?

Sigh. Neither do I.

Still, this has to be some kind of low, right? The Chronicle of Higher Education is calling for papers on the hermeneutics of Brad Pitt. Curtsy to Ignatius Insight (which asks the ontological question: can Brad Pitt act?) for pointing the way to this post, so I can continue to feel secure in my choice not to go on for a doctorate.
