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.

And the saga continues....

House Speaker John Boehner is working hard to put Senate Democrats and President Obama between a rock and a hard place. Actually it's more like Speaker Boehner keeps throwing grenades (stop-gap spending bills) over to the senate with the pin pulled (short expiration dates) in an attempt to make Democrats panic, either letting it blow up in their face (letting the government shutdown) or throwing it in a direction they would not prefer (the wrong way or at President Obama). So it appears Congress is engaging in a game of hot-potato with live ammunition: the budget.
