I teach writing and literature at Antelope Valley College in California, but all opinions expressed at this blog are my own. I’m using this blog as an outlet for free thought about whatever happens to be of interest to me on any given day. I am not writing as a spokesperson for my employer.
I share 20th century journalist I.F. Stone’s belief that:
[N]o society is good, whatever its intentions, whatever its utopian and liberationist claims, if the men and women who live in it are not free to speak their minds.
Consequently, this blog is a place where I speak my mind.
