In case you missed it, Brian Leiter has an interesting new article assessing the state of our profession here. It seems right on to me, but I wonder whether others (including my more experienced colleagues) would agree.

While emailing a friend today, I noticed something odd: I take it that a honky tonk is a kind of rowdy bar found in the southern U.S. that plays to a mostly working-class clientele. Is anyone offended by the name "honky tonk"? Why or why not? Isn't the word "honky" still a racial slur toward whites? Clearly "chinky tonks" or "kikey tonks" would be offensive. What's the difference?
