And how skipped is this? I know I got my copy at an airport, must've been on the way home. On top of my reading stack now, already 6 yrs old.

Lots bad to share but when do we hear solutions? Add these to your skipped stew pot pantry (spicy servings so far!), knowing I've missed a lot that's pretty much it from my end. ###

Catching up with your videos. Had to check Brown U. Wasn't familiar with the Political Theory Project but I do follow the Costs of War Project at the Watson Institute there, not nearly similar :-)

You got me wondering how many times Joe Biden has used the term 'common good'. No answer from a quick search but I came on this internal consistency head scratcher White House//FACT SHEET. Separating church from state through a White House Office for Faith Based . . . Partnerships? KNOWING doesn't mean doing, and CIVIL is not religious. (Nor in an international forum is CIVIL bullying.) And named groups aren't special interests? Don't think of an elephant :-)

"As our country grapples with a global pandemic, a severe economic downturn, the scourge of systemic racism, an escalating climate crisis and profound polarization, President Biden knows that civil society partnerships are essential to meeting such challenges."
