    I went to a lecture yesterday afternoon by Piotr Michalowski of UMich. He's the foremost Sumerologist who writes in English now, probably, since Samuel Noah Kramer is dead. Anyhow, I expected to see a small crowd, but there were over 50 people there, including five of the humpiest grad students I've seen on this campus. (Who knew junior Sumerologists were so good-looking?)

    He gave a fine paper, btw.  Mostly on the way even literary documentation remaining from the Ur III dynastic period clusters around certain events in political history of the era. So it was about politics, and mentioning it on daily kos isn't off-topic after all, right?
