An earlier than usual start today. Required to be on campus by 8.15, that means everything must be compressed (and a little less time on twitter). Out the door at 6.30 and on the way.

As I sign off this evening, we are hearing announcements of ministers resigning from government. It is not uncommon for parliamentarians to announce their intentions to resign rather than stand for election next time. I guess we weren't expecting such prominent resignations so soon. It might slightly derail the PM's confident call of the election date. So close to preparing the first lectures too...teaching politics can be so dynamic.
Today was also the day, I suspect, we'll witness the beginning of the end of the one-day international cricket format. I prefer it over the much shorter T20 but not as much as the tests. The once-mighty West Indies were humbled, all out for 70 runs. It follows an equally shocking capitulation by the Australian team against Sri Lanka a couple of weeks ago. Is it a player-led revolt to chip away at what they might consider too many matches? I guess that's one way to fix your workload.
It's raining again, the winds are here; we're not over the weather yet.
