About jyoung17102@gmail.com

I'm something of a public intellectual, ninety percent retired -- teaching one course per term for Montgomery County Community College in Eastern Pennsylvania and engaged in research, writing, and activism. My interests run from the historical and literary to political and economic matters. I've been heavily involved in labor and environmental issues.

James in Wonderland

   Am I missing something, or has not one of my normally communicative colleagues posted a text since just before the past election?  The union’s blog could serve as a forum for all kinds of presentation and discussion.  

   I’m wondering now about the thinking of one of our colleagues who stated openly in an office area that he really didn’t think it would make much of a difference who won the presidential race, but that he’d vote for Romney because “I’m a member of the NRA, so I’ll go with them.”  I’ve been around Mc3 for only three years and have witnessed very little political discussion among our colleagues, so I have to ask — Is this level of sophistication common among us?   

Incredulously,

Jim Young
