I need to blog about so many things. Georgia, U.S. politics, the rise of neo-Nazism in Germany... the list is long and so very complex, but I also have TONS of writing for others -- for the Iowa Writing Project, the National Endowment for the Humanities, Green Theory and Praxis, and don't forget my syllabi for Fall semester!
