The Female Science Professor is doing a great series of posts about interviewing for faculty jobs.  See here, here, and here, with two more parts to come.  On a related note, Massimo has a post about negotiating faculty job offers that is a follow-up to another post by Professor in Training.  I did not bother to re-write my post about applying for faculty jobs this year, and here's an old post I wrote about the interview process.  It also never hurts to remind people about suggestions on how to give talks.

I agree completely with Chad Orzel that Dennis Overbye at the NY Times needs to remember that "physics" extends beyond just high energy theory.

Finally, according to The Onion ("America's Finest News Source"), physics is done.  Guess it's time to re-evaluate that career choice.
