brain clench

Woke up with a start this morning - which theorist talked about the culture of consumption and the welfare state having contributed to the decline of egalitarian conversation in the public sphere of civil society?!

Oh! It was Habermas. Gramsci was the other guy, all about hegemony and the masses. Sank back into the pillow in relief.

Wait...I don't need to know that anymore. That exam was written Tuesday. 

My brain is taking longer than usual to unclench.

Meanwhile, a textbook for January's course has arrived. I flipped through it last night. Doesn't look too bad. 

On we go!
