why I don’t “have summers off”

25 June 2012

Political scientists love summer break. They do not sail, as they have no money for a boat. They do not sun bathe, as they would burn outdoors. Spending time with children is not high on the priority list, at least for male political scientists, who generally use their paternity leave as a sabbatical to finish a book. And it is well known that political scientists are all deathly afraid of kites. No, political scientists love summer break for the exact opposite reason as everyone else. They get to work. 

That is the start of a post from The Duck of Minerva in their series, “Stuff Political Scientists Like.” It gives some context to my earlier post on planning a productive summer.
