Summer is finally here. (All went well, thank you.) As you can see, posting has been slow, partly because finals took up a lot of my time. Hopefully, with more free time now, I will be able to contribute more often.There all sorts of happy things to talk about, like torture and the Afghan war! We’ll see where things go. As always, I’m looking for more contributors who are from SCSU and would like to write about politics, economics, philosophy, or other events that might interest the SCSU and surrounding community. Contrarian views are certainly welcome. Just leave a message or shoot me an e-mail.
