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.

Tucson Tragedy Hits Home for CMC Student

The following is a link to an article I wrote for the Port Side a week ago based on my interview of Isabelle Heilman a Tucson-native CMC student who felt close to the Gabrielle Giffords shooting.

From the article:

The assassination attempt on Congresswoman and Scripps alumna Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona this past Saturday sent shockwaves through the Claremont community. Yet for one CMC student, the tragedy truly hit home.

Isabelle Heilman (CMC ’13) hails from Tucson and lives in Rep. Gifford’s 8th District. The scene of the tragic shootings was the Safeway grocery store where Heilman’s family shops every Saturday. According to Heilman, the shootings occured only “two minutes away from my house.”
