Hey, South Carolinians! Fun and excitement this Saturday at your local polling place. Remember, as the SC election commis says: "S.C. does not have registration by party. The Presidential Primary is open to all registered S.C.
voters."

No democratic primary, but EVERY registered voter in SC can vote in the republican primary. Find your local polling place at http://www.scvotes.org/ and help the GOP pick their poison. (No write-in ballots, sorry.)

Not sure who you should vote for? Check out this current candidate ad:

A good article on Bank Transfer Day. If you are with a major commercial bank, now is a good time to switch to a credit union or one of the less than a handful of banks in the US on the Ethical Banking model.

Submissions for the RoC special issue on microhistories of communication are rolling in and look fantastic. Two of the best things about being editor of RoC:
1. Reading a large amount of interesting and exciting work.
2. Helping some of that work come to print and to other readers.

The power issue is also coming together nicely, showing some great insights into the discipline's treatment of power and some opportunities for cross-speciality conversations on power.

If you missed issue 13.4, go back and check out the work on organizational pedagogy, creativity, ludic anxiety, and the history of the Australian Journal of Communication.

And keep the great work coming!
