The Whaling Museum has made its official announcement: MDM16 will begin Jan. 7, 2012.
Get hold of a Northwestern-Newberry text and book a room for the night of Jan. 8 (so as not to imperil your health).
If you can make the 10 AM "Stump the Scholars" talk (Jan. 7), you won't be disappointed (if it's like last year's, inaugural STS). The Friday night buffet/lecture also will be worthwhile.
See you there.
