I have sinned against biblioblogdom, and I am sorry. As Tyler Williams (Codex) and Doug Chaplin (Metacatholic) have noted, the person responsible for Biblical Studies Carnival XXIV canceled at the last minute. Not only did he trample upon the sacred institution of the carnival – he actually desecrated it during the high-holy month of SBL.
Unfortunately, I am that person.
Let me express my deepest regrets and apologies to the community and to Tyler in particular for backing out. I’ve felt like a louse for it.
So, in the spirit of works-righteousness (I do, after all like the Epistle of James), perhaps some of the community could chime in with appropriate penance for the guilty to perform in order to receive absolution.
Is there any penance appropriate? Flogging? Cilice?
