I know I’ve been promising a post on my Chicago Seminars talk on cruising for far too long now. Unfortunately, getting prepped for a 3-week sabbatical has proven to  be more time consuming than I could have imagined. My plan was to build this elaborate post with all kinds of context surrounding my slides, but there is no way I’m going to get that done before I leave for Rome tomorrow. In the meantime, I thought I would try posting the presentation on its own. If any of my talking points lead to questions, please comment, and maybe we can get a good discussion going right here.
