- The one where I outed a former colleague for being a serial sexual harasser. 50% more hits than the 2nd post
- Which inspired the first one--a short post reacting to a NYT op-ed on sexism in academia, arguing that institutions protect themselves, not the students.
- My recent post arguing that putting any hope on the Republicans to remove or mitigate Trump is a mistake.
- A 2015 post that argues that there is sexism in political science.
- A 2013 post on the political science job market and its implications for potential phd students: Mama, don't let your kids become political scientists. See the latest report here.
- A happier post: the best political science books for those interested in military history. This was a response in a long running conversation with Tom Ricks about the relevance of political science.
- Even happier still: the page I have created for "Team Steve"--my former students and their pubs--got heaps of hits this year. I should update it...
- A post from 2015 reassuring folks that, um, rejection is inherent in our business keeps getting views. In it, I document the many rejections of articles, books, grant applications that I have had in my career.
- Reporting reactions to the top post of the year--what progress has been made? Not much.
- My attempt at explaining the pattern of Trump cabinet picks.
In terms of how the blog is viewed: Chrome > Safari >> Firefox > IE >> Edge > Blackberry?
How did people find my posts:
- Duck of Minerva
- WashPo (mostly due to the old story about comparative xenophobia)
Anyhow, as always, I am grateful to those who read my stuff and engage me either via comments or on twitter or facebook. Thanks for linking to the Spew and sharing my half-baked ideas. Let's hope that 2017 is a better year, with more positive things to post about.
