How about we go all in to apply our best theories to support the citizens of Furgeson in evaluating and changing unfair laws and procedures? Whoever can examine the dynamics there and raise up true equality will gain serious credibility.

Mother Jones' Adam Serwer and I had a great conversation on Bloggingheads TV! Topics included Mitt Romney "gifts," demographics and political parties -- and, of course, the rise of the Black Nerd on TV! Enjoy!

Being deemed so suspicious that you are suddenly followed by an individual carrying a threatening object is an unpleasant experience. It stays with you a quarter century later.
So, about 25 years ago, I was living in Annapolis, capital of Maryland, sitting right on the Chesapeake Bay. It has a distinction of being one of the early capitals of young America AND a major port f...

Say it ain't so, Joe.

The winningest coach in college football history is out, following the exposure of what amounted to a 13-year institutional cover-up at Penn State of alleged serial pedophile, defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. (Gory grand jury details can be read here. And FAIR WARNING: This is truly ugly stuff.) So, students end up rioting in Happy Valley because of Paterno's instant dismissal. Really, kids? You planning on purchasing "Rioters 4 Pederasts"?

So, over the last years, during the first week in April, I've attended the Conference on World Affairs in Boulder, CO.  I call it my intellectual Spring Break.  I appear on several panels talking politics, media, pop culture, comic books and various other matters of a high and low nature!  This year one of them was on the "Uses of Twitter"!  As luck would have it, the C-SPAN cameras were there to cover it.  
It aired a few times last week and is available online right here, http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/311967-1.  My initial comments click in around 6 minutes and 15 seconds, but I recommend the whole segment.  My learned co-panelists are journalist Shane Bauer who spent several months imprisoned in Iran, comic book writer G. Willow Wilson and drug law activist Sanho Tree.
