UPDATE: Check Out this C’Ville Police Car

UPDATE: I’m a hack and a fraud. I didn’t check if the CVille Police had bowed to public pressure or not… I never thought that they would. But it seems that they will take the car out of the fleet next year. From The Daily Progress on 12/12/2019: “We felt it was appropriate to review…

Voices and Stories from the NYC Climate March

Across the country and the world last Friday, kids and adults marched and rallied in solidarity in a Climate Strike. The NYC Mayors office puts the number of people who marched in Manhattan at 60,000, according to the NTY Times; the organizers say 250,000.

Photos from the New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention

It was quite nice to visit New Hampshire in the Summer. New Hampshire in the Winter is well, not as pleasant. On somewhat of a whim I drove the 6 hours to Manchester, NH to cover the convention and get a load of great stock photos of the candidates… all of them. Dear lord… SO…

Photos from the Picket Line in Rochester – Midnight

Mike Elk and I have been on the picket line for the last week speaking to union workers who are on strike from their jobs at GM.  Our first stop was in Rochester, NY. When you think of union autoworkers you think Detroit, maybe Ohio… but thousands are employed by GM and other auto manufacturers…

Learn. Fight. Win.

A woefully incomplete guide to the people, books, and sites that you should be following to keep ahead of the rise of white extremists.  Every time there is another white extremist-related incident or arrest I am reminded that the major news publications and cable networks are out of their depth.

Anniversary of Alaska’s Fight Against Big Oil’s #SB21

Six years ago, I was in Alaska covering the fight against the oil companies take over of the Alaskan government under the guise of Senate Bill 21. SB21 would dramatically change the tax structure for oil drilled in Alaska – taxes that pay for the state’s operational costs, including the Permanent Dividend Fund (PFD). Six…
