New gig

Beginning September 7th, I’ll be working full-time for Change.org, writing about issues like the war on drugs, police abuse and the evils of the U.S. prison system; that is, about everything I pretty much rant about in my free time, except now I’ll actually get paid for it. I’m not quite sure what the jobs means for this here blog, as my desire to write about injustices in the world is very likely to be satiated by my day job for the first time in my life, but I’d expect a bit less posting over the coming months.

I’ll still find the time to mock Tom Friedman, though — of that I am a sure.

As for the new gig, I expect everyone reading this post to visit the site I’ll soon be editing, criminaljustice.change.org, and send me any scathing (but constructive!) observations that cross your mind — what’s good, what sucks; could it use a blog? Should a certain issue be covered more? — by emailing me. And don’t let me down: I’ve got a lot riding on you all making me look smarter and better informed than I really am. I need this.

I was directed here in order to read "The siren call of electoral politics" which I agreed with for the most part. I don't know you and I am glad you are going to get paid to write but I am also curious as to the "liberal" bloggers/writers response to this:http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2010/08/27/pretty-words-the-same-o-same-o/Certainly no offense meant but I am not sure all the "ranting" is having much affect.Peace.
