I've deleted the lecture that I had tentatively scheduled for 9 September. That means there won't be any lectures next week. After Wednesday's lecture, we'll resume with a guest lecture from Dave Roberts on 12 September. I will do my best to condense two lectures into one (there was only one set of notes anyway).
I've also added announcements for the Teale Series Lectures to the course schedule. I won't be taking attendance, but I encourage you to attend if you can. The Teale Series is a joint effort of faculty from a variety of departments, and it brings scholars with a wide range of expertise and background to campus, focusing on the environment. This year's series looks pretty good. (Of course, I'm prejudiced. I am one of those who helps organize it.)
