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.

West Wing employees to face furloughs, pay cuts

In class on Wednesday we talked about possible consequences of the sequester.  This Politico article talks about how the employees in the West Wing will most likely be affected.  In the clip attached with the article deputy White House press secretary John Earnest says that the people, "who work here at the White House that will be facing pay cuts, that will be facing furloughs and again, this is the result of a policy that Democrats and Republicans agree is really bad.”
