I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

There must be somthing in the water in Illinois...

The Honorable (or not) Senator Roland Burris, appointed by former Governor and future felon Rod Blagojevich, is currently "under an ethical cloud" according to Politico.

One of the conditions of Burris' appointment was that he testify to the investigating committee that he had not been approached by Blago for campaign contributions. Burris testified that he had not been approached.

He later submitted an affidavit stating that he had been approached by the Governor's brother, and asked to contribute.

If what is being reported in the story is true, then it seems pretty clear that Burris committed perjury.
