I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:

· To post questions or comments;

· To follow up on class discussions;

· To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

The Trucking Lobby and Anti-Terrorism

Interesting article from Politico about a large amount of government money the trucking industry got to allegedly fight terrorism. It seems as though the trucking lobby may have been able to get a massive amount of money from the government to do almost nothing. It might be interesting to see one of these hour long DVDs about how to spot terrorism on America's highways (in article).
