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.

Tom Cotton added to SecDef Shortlist.....

Apparently Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) joined the SecDef shortlist yesterday. He actively served in the army from 2005 to 2010, and in the reserves from 2010-2013. As those in the simulation's Armed Services Committee can attest, his rhetoric is aggressive and he often votes against Rep. legislation because it is not harsh enough (ie: sim. Cotton voted against the bill to keep GITMO open but DID add an amendment to build more beds so the detainees can "rot in hell," something REAL Cotton said in a hearing [here]). Overall, not thrilled with his potential to make sound choices for our country's security.
