"In fiction, the principles are given, to find the facts: in history, the facts are given, to find the principles; and the writer who does not explain the phenomena as well as state them performs only one half of his office."
Thomas Babington Macaulay, "History," Edinburgh Review, 1828

Amherst Flag Contest About to End: Voting Ends November 30
As recently noted, the Amherst flag contest is underway. In fact, it's now about to end. See the designs and cast your vote here.
As of mid-month, 330 people had participated.
I'll post an update after the deadline passes.

Update on the update: that follow-up never materialized because things took a somewhat different turn this year. The committees took a different route and solicited further designs, which received a provisional review only at the end 2011. A final decision is expected in early 2012.
