#SPARCS2015, Phoenix, Arizona: YES!!! (And also some academics-related musings)

Peggy Moran commented on a post on Blogger.
I'm back, restating my case for why the world will be a better place if I am chosen to receive one of the coveted #SPARCS2015 tickets.

animal behavior community as crazy dog lovers who were barking up the wrong
tree.  Okay, that is an exaggeration...
