I, for one, would happily trade my administrative duties for an extra class per year!

If you're not a very dedicated teacher and you don't publish then service seems to be the only thing left to justify your salary. So it would seem obvious that those who can't teach and who don't write would take on a large share of a school's service needs. Things hardly work out this way, though, because those who are energetic teachers and active scholars are also typically the ones who are leading the committees, running the symposia and other events, participating in workshops, and heading up initiatives. The risk in this arrangement, though, is that service needs can easily expand because of the willingness of the energetic to serve.
