Well, I just returned from Las Vegas where I attended the 2011 annual meeting of the American Sociological Association. I thought for this set of du[a]ling quotes I would share two of my favorite comments I heard during the conference. Here they are:
"Questions are good things. Comments are welcome."
- Diane Pike, beginning her opening discussion at the ASA Section on Teaching Learning Pre-Conference Workshop "The Best Teachers We Can Be: Learning Scholarly Teaching."
"We all have limitations, that is why we are here. ... Economists have more limitations."
- Remark by a session presider, discussing "limitation" slides in presentations.
