Dang.  That’s a lot of people.
Hi, people!  Hi!  I’m not sure why most of you are following me, but I sure am glad you are.

WASHINGTON, DC — Earlier today, the National Bar Association filed a lawsuit against the City of Ferguson, MO and the Ferguson Police Department seeking any and all incident reports, investigative reports, notes and memorandums prepared by Ferguson Police officers, in-dash camera video, photographs, cellphone video and recordings in connection with the shooting death of Michael Brown. 

The National Bar Association also sent a Preservation of Evidence Notice to both entities requesting that they preserve the police officers’ raw notes of all statements, observations, and data collected from the scene of the incident, specifically including the officer involved and all responding officers, officer detail logs from the crime scene, and video & photographic evidence related to the August 9, 2014, fatal shooting of Michael Brown and subsequent arrests of protestors in the City of Ferguson.

"There can be no full, fair and accurate accounting in any state or federal criminal or civil action unless any and all footage is carefully preserved," stated Pamela J. Meanes, President of the National Bar Association. "We want to ensure the family of Micheal Brown and the residents of St. Louis understand correct measures are being taken to protect evidence regarding this tragic incident."
In wake of the recent events taking place in Ferguson and across the country, the National Bar Association has developed a task force that will evaluate complaints of police misconduct and/or police brutality nationwide, an online petition has been created calling for an independent investigation for the death of Micheal Brown Jr. and an open book request has been filed in 25 cities and states for information on police actions.

The lawsuit comes days after the City of Ferguson Police Department released the name of Darren Wilson, the officer identified of shooting Brown.

I had two days off.  Two days to sit at the computer and agonize and think about how badly I wanted to write without ever actually writing.

I have to work at 1pm. 

Guess whose brain has finally decided to start producing words?

So, all summer long, I’ve been smelling a skunk outside my window.  Middle of the day, early evening, first thing in the morning.  If the window is open, sooner or later, I will smell that damn skunk.  Even when my downstairs neighbors are hanging out on their porch, talking.

In fact, especially when my neighbors are talking.

… I think I just figured out what pot smoke smells like, you guys.

friends in academia!



Where might I find creative non-fiction and essays online for my students to read that are actually good?

I can’t buy a book because they told me (quite forcefully) that we can’t require another book for the course, and the book the school chose is TERRIBLE, so I’m looking for alternatives.

My students are college freshmen (ages 18-20~) and I would love essays that have a pop-culture base or are written by someone they might know, as that may improve the chances of them actually reading them.

If you don’t have an answer for me, PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST because surely someone might have some recs?


reblogging myself because I could still use some recs.
