I had a dream last night about a dissertation idea--yep, even up in Alaska, I can't escape the profession in my dreams. Anyhow, my idea, theory-less as it may be: it would be cool to do network analyses (which are probably no longer the rage) of Trump before the campaign and now. It would be interesting to see where these various arsonists came from (whenever I say arsonist, I mean Trump cabinet secretaries), and who they were linked to before and now.
It may not be much, but it could be fun.
As an old prof (Mr. Neil of Oberlin) used to say, "this, I give you for free." And it might be worth exactly as much as it costs in this case.
