Forward on Climate

On February 17, I attended the largest climate change rally in U.S. history. Approximately 40,000 to 50,000 people gathered in Washington D.C. for the Forward on Climate rally and march. I was very excited and honored to travel with a small group of people from Southern Illinois to speak out on behalf of all of the people who couldn't be there. Together with over 40,000 other people from many places and backgrounds, we raised our voices to say no to Keystone XL and yes to action on climate change.

First Draft of Change Complete

I am pleased to announce that the first draft of my upcoming novel, Change, is officially complete! I still have some revisions to make prior to publication, but I'm very happy to have a strong first draft in my hands. I'm confident that the revision process will go quickly and smoothly. I've asked several people for feedback on this draft and look forward to hearing their critiques and reviews. In fact, I've already started receiving my first responses!

Believe in Your Future

The Southern Illinoisan, the largest newspaper serving the Southern Illinois region, recently published an editorial titled "Believe in your future; vote for coal candidates". I believe in my future, and I believe in the future of Southern Illinois. However, I get the impression that the editorial staff of the Southern Illinoisan and I have somewhat different visions of that future.

Different visions are fine. However, the vision presented in this editorial is such a far departure from reality that I felt inspired to reply. Currently, I don't have any sort of public vision statement of my own on the subject. I plan on developing one soon. [Hint: I support Paula Bradshaw for Congress.] In the meantime, I'd like to share my response to the Southern's vision for the future of Southern Illinois (and the nation and the planet).
