Friday Varia and Quick Hits

It’s feeling a bit more like spring in North Dakotaland. The piles of snow are shrinking daily, the flurries yesterday seemed particular half-hearted, and our eyes turn warily to the mighty Red River of the North whose waters rise to meet the challenge of the flood walls.

Fortunately, this is opening weekend for baseball, the home stretch of the NBA season, NCAA March Madness, the second race of the Formula 1 calendar, and the start of NASCAR midseason. If that’s not enough there are always piles of books to read, make, and covet. (And, if you haven’t downloaded a free copy of volume 85 of North Dakota Quarterly for your springtime reading, you really should. It’s free and includes a special section on the Humanities in the Age of Austerity.)    

To add a bit of leaven to your weekend, here are some quick hits and varia:
