I know many of my readers come from the political science field. Let me commiserate with you on the literally last-minute cancellation of the American Political Science Association (APSA) Annual Conference in New Orleans, which was due to begin tomorrow. None of us can predict the weather, though it is hurricane season.
My own field is history. Interestingly enough, the American Historical Association is holding its annual meeting in New Orleans as well this year. Of course, AHA is doing it in January. I could make a joke about how historians know how to look up when hurricane season is, but that would be taking unfair advantage. Sorry about APSA. And best wishes to all in Isaac's path.
