Since we have another few days before cricket recommences and then a few beyond that for more college footballing, I found a little gaggle of quick hits and varia to keep you entertained.
- Classics and the Modern Middle East.
- Pottery and Politics in the Western Argolid Archaeological Project.
- Some lovely thoughts on Greece.
- A couple more New York Times articles on the Bakken: A Priest in the Patch and Corruption and the Reservation
- And some National Geographic on the Boom.
- I had a small panic last night that our workforce housing sites in the Bakken might all start to close down in the wintertime making it harder to document what was left behind.
- Henry Rollins’ sweet stereo.
- Be cold!
- What I’m reading: L. Wilkie, The Lost Boys of Zeta Psi: A Historical Archaeology of Masculinity in a University Fraternity. Berkeley 2010.

No, really, my paws don’t work. Bring the treat to me here.
