Inkling

"while sharing our coming out"

I knew it!

Misspent

Inks, you just are causing trouble. It is ironic, as in coming out as evil Straussian-leaning reactionaries. Although we have nothing like your Strauss creds, your having been schooled by Cropsey and all.

Mrs Peperium

Inks stains the post? Maybe. Misspent, What were you two wearing when you came out? (This might just decide it for everyone)

Misspent

Um, I had on a hooded GW sweatshirt and jeans with sneakers.

Inkling

I stand corrected. That is precisely what Cropsey used to wear at his lectures.

Misspent

I do need to get myself a U Chicago sweatshirt so I can put all the academic punks in their place by pointing my belly at them like a Care Bear. Then I will oppress them liike a good Straussian-leaning reactionary.

I, on the other hand, was wearing a silver coat with a pink fur collar. Never let it be said that we English can't come out in style, baby.

Inkling will be glad to know that I bought a copy of Cropsey's "Polity and Economy" from the Seminary Co-op Bookstore.

Inkling

Ah, the Seminary Co-Op.... What fond memories that felicitous phrase brings....

Quicquid

Yes it certainly does. Seldom does one's head hit on a more stimulating set of overhead pipes than in that delightful basement.

Unless it's moved.

Misspent

I do love the Seminary Co-op, and will miss it greatly. Even though I will be leaving Chicago, I will still keep my share. I'm curious for more, Blimpish. What did you think of it?

Misspent

I was particularly proud of my Care Bear comment. That still makes me chuckle. Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle.

Blimpish

What did I think of the Seminary Co-op?

Very good, although some deeply worrying books on display in some corners of the place. I did like its claustrophobic air, though - wasn't at all what I expected, given how most US bookshops are.

Great selection, though - several I wanted to buy but decided to not blow every cent I had (not to mention inflicting charges for heavy luggage!). Good collection of Roger Scruton, which was good to see.
