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.

Violence Against Women Act...Controversial?

Senate Democrats are taking this opportunity to slam Senate Republicans.  Extension of the Violence against Women Act has been brought to the Senate Floor for debate with some new additions, namely extension of this act's coverage to illegal immigrants, lesbians, and gay men.  Senate Republicans are against this new version and the Democrats are crying fowl, saying that the Republicans are only against it because of the portions that cover illegal immigrants and the gay and lesbian community.

Republicans on the other hand say this is not true and object to VAWA on other grounds, such as budget constraints.  They claim that Democrats are using this as an opportunity to slam the GOP as a whole.
