Wow. I’d never known, until I just stumbled onto her Wikipedia page, that the pseudonymous blogger Hilzoy is Dr. _____. Though I doubt she remembers me, I took a philosophy course under Professor ______ as a freshman at Pomona College. All these years later, I still recall the cadence of her speech, the method of her arguments, and I almost feel stupid for not having sooner realized that there was something familiar about Hilzoy—and though I never had an inkling, now that I do know I can hear Professor ____’s voice every time I read a Hilzoy post.
