Yeshiva University Event Coverage

It occurred to me that it would be much easier for everyone to read my (usually unofficial) notes from events and lectures at Yeshiva University if everything were organized under one post. I could then update this post whenever I posted new material. I'll also place it in my sidebar for easy access.

So here you go.

Another suggestion: Put your collection of notes as a set of links on the side bar. If you look at my blog, you'll see I have a collection of what I consider to be my best posts; maybe you could do something along those lines.

...or create drop-down menus. Or, though I don't know how to use it yet, label your posts - the new Blogger will organize accordingly.

Also, you left out the Stern play!

The notes ARE in the sidebar. See under 'My Lecture Notes' the link YU Event Coverage.

Drop-Down Menus are no good when it comes to linking. See, my intent is that someone can have easy access to everything at once. They never have to visit my main blog again in an attempt to ferret out information; they only have to link to one post.

I didn't write a review of the Stern play; I simply engaged in some vitriolic conversation.
