Hectic day, but good


in Daily updates, Oxford

Red Room in New College, Oxford

As is the norm for Tuesday, it has been hectic. I had a spattering of lectures, OUSSG, and a few other tasks besides. Now, I am going to go try to watch the Daily Show coverage of the midterm elections. Whether I succeed or fail in the attempt, I will not be able to stay up long, as I will be heading to London tomorrow.

Sorry to be so brief, but there are greater things afoot than blogging.

If you really want to read something related to environmental politics, here are some notes from an interesting lecture at the Said Business School – yet another series to which I will have to subscribe. The wiki is actually proving a surprisingly useful tool for research and general student purposes.

PS. Hilary Benn, the British Secretary of State for International Development, sent me a response to the fish paper today. I first spoke with him about it on October 10th. I have yet to go through his letter in detail, but it is clearly the most comprehensive response I have ever received in writing from a politician.

How exciting to get such a well-thought out response. You must have impressed him in some way for him to go to the trouble. Maybe he could offer you a job when you graduate from O!

It’s enough of a surprise to get a non-form letter. I doubt any jobs will be in the offing.
