In honor (erm....) of this year's failed job search, GayProf, I'd like to offer something I think will cheer you up a bit: Valley of the Dolls of Academe. It's not you, baby, it's the crazy committees full of vicious, insecure, backstabbing members. (Academia really is like a covey of bitchy queens, isn't it?) Check out the rest of the blog; it's a hoot. The author is a member of "the tribe" and, I'm sure, as a fellow "tribal" academic of color, would speak to you a lot more than to me and my non-academic Anglo-ness.
