I'm not sure if it's stubbornness or fear of the unknown, but I plan to
stay in academia for a while.  I left a hotshot med school as a postdoc to
come to a school with a balance of teaching and research
responsibilities.  (Grad TA's don't teach entire courses in our dept.)  I
do have a more balanced life than I did as a postdoc.  So, unless I get
dinged for tenure in 2001, this is where I'll stay.
