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.

American Lung Association Report Card

We recently read in the NRA chapter how interest groups often grade laws or Congressmen based upon how well they benefit the organization's cause. I was looking online for information about my paper, and I found a nice example of this on the American Lung Association's website. They grade states based upon how well they prevent youth smoking and second hand smoke, among other things.
