Good God, I love Dr. Diana York Blaine so much. I am forever thankful for the controversy over her naked breasts that took me to her blog.
In Southern California, it is popular to bag on USC (also known as "University of Spoiled Children," for instance). It is like the Harvard of the west - people who went there let you know within 5 minutes of meeting them that they are alums. Annoying as hell. But the fact that she teaches there makes me hate USC so much less, and that is saying something.
