Hi there! Welcome! A post I wrote about really, really wishing that the GOP would just shut up about black people brought me a lot of traffic this week, so I thought I would fill folks in on what else they might find here:
I do write a fair amount on issues of domestic politics and social justice (you know, your standards: racism, homophobia, sexism, the assault on workers’ rights…), but I also write a lot about the Middle East, and more particularly about Israel/Palestine. And when I’m not writing about stuff that might make you want to drink too much, I also write about music and my kids and whatever else might catch my fancy, whether it’s imaginary friends, memories of being a papergirl, or why “nude” is not, in fact, a color (which is also kind of an anti-racism/social justice thing, but also funny! I hope).
One note: I’m Jewish and moderately observant, which means I don’t work on Shabbat — which in turn means I won’t be around the blog from sundown (CST) tonight until about an hour after sundown on Saturday. If you comment and get caught in moderation, I’ll fish you out as soon as I can!
And thanks again for stopping by. A shabbat shalom (peaceful sabbath) to one and all!
