Congratulations to Lindsay Hoffman, who after going on several interviews (and experiencing a number of other contacts expressing interest) has decided to accept an offer to be an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Delaware. As a former BA/MA graduate from that program, I can attest to the strong quality of this program. Lindsay will still be with us through the end of the summer, but please take the time to congratulate her on getting this job so early in the search process.

For those who are into both political data and graphics, be sure to look at the extensive Election 2006 section of the New York Times website. Data are gathered there from the Senate, House and Governor elections. The House page is particularly extensive. You can select districts to look at that meet a variety of criteria, see them on a map, and then see a summary of data about them on the right. The sliding chart at the top that looks a bit like a bar code compares the 2004 and 2006 results is also awesome. Note that many of the maps can be weighted by population for a different view of their importance. http://www.nytimes.com/ref/elections/2006/House.html
