Hello to the list. Ken, I must disagree with this statement of yours:

Even the most devoted teachers and professors are expected to have outside
interests -- they do not teach/lecture/advise/committeegrok/study 16 hours
a day, 7 days a week. If one of those outside interests is medieval
genealogy, other people benefit when that specialized knowledge is shared.
It is quite unfair to say their profession (college, university) gets
"much less than 100 percent effort" when that happens.
Cheers, Dolly in Maryland
