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.

The sad decline of the Kennedy Family

HEYO. Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), son of the late Teddy, has announced that he will not seek reelection and will retire at the end of the year.

According to Politico, a number of factors added up to this decision, including his drunk driving problems, his father's death, Scott Brown's election, and a strong Republican contender. Possibly taking his seat for the Dems? Providence mayor Buddy Cianci, who just got out of a five-year stint in federal prison for a corruption conviction. Oddly enough, a Mafia figure is probably more fitting for Rhode Island than a Kennedy.
