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.

Highlight from pg. 52 of Straus...

Tom Delay was extremely skilled at counting votes, but he was also successful because he had built a reservoir of goodwill by doing small favors, like providing barbecue chicken when the House met late in the evening (Baker 2000, 45).

FYI this is an open invitation to provide barbecue chicken or ribs from Freddy's BBQ Joint ;) during the simulation.
