Thank you for this! The timing is brilliant. You see, one morning last week I was thinking on how to reach out to a grad school friend across the country. She lent me her couch a couple weeks ago, and I wanted to send a little "thinking of you" message. One of the things we really clicked over was Les Mis, and so I had this (sleep, pre-coffee) thought that I should google Les Miserable and Barack Obama, to see if there was anything out there that combined the two. Once I had coffee, the idea seemed pretty preposterous.

That evening I was combing through my "academic journals" bookmarks folder, which had been neglected while I finished up my prospectus. When I opened your page, I nearly fell off my chair. My sleep-addled brain never imagined such joyous absurdity.

My friend loved the link too.
