Howdy. I write a lot about politics, social movements, and grassroots strategies and tactics at Beyondthechoir.org (my posts are all here), but sometimes I want to write about random things that don’t really fit that site’s mission. And sometimes I want to drop a few tentative ideas without first having to work all the way through them. Because maybe someone who reads this will have related ideas — or suggested readings — that I should consider before I spend 100 hours refining my thoughts. So yeah, this is my sloppy blog. You’ve been warned.
