Editorial: Of elections and 'the Dream'

Posted on November 12, 2018 |
By Angelo Lynn



A generation or so ago, the American Dream was writ large in our cultural DNA. Symbolically, the dream came to mean owning an adequate house, having a family, a car and a job to pay for it all. In the 1950s-60s-70s, that seemed to be possible for a majority of Americans. The mantra was that if you graduated high school, worked hard, and kept your nose clean you’d get to that dream in your thirties, start building equity and have enough to retire on Social Security by 65. That was the life.

Ways of Seeing by Mary E. Mendoza: Misogynistic humor isn't funny, even in satire

Posted on November 8, 2018 |
By Mary E. Mendoza



Mendoza , Mary -ways of seeing.jpg

Last week I attended an academic conference for historians in the American West. The organization that puts on this productive annual meeting, has come a long way in the last 15 years. It used to be a place that was relatively hostile to women and people of color, but over time, we have seen a huge shift, in part because the organization’s leadership has stopped giving hate a platform.

Jessie Raymond: Stuffing the turkey, literally this time

Posted on November 8, 2018 |
By Jessie Raymond

Under normal circumstances, cooking a traditional Thanksgiving dinner is not that complicated.

Yes, putting together so many dishes can be time consuming, but roasting food isn’t that demanding a task: while things cook, you pass the time by looking for the good tablecloth and drinking wine, at least where I come from.

Some people, particularly new cooks, quake at the thought of hosting the most important meal of the year. But the menu hasn’t changed in generations.

Greg Dennis: I Volted: The how and why of EVs

Posted on November 8, 2018 |
By Greg Dennis



Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

It’s foolish to think that we can buy our way out of the climate crisis. But for those of us who lose sleep over what climate change will mean for the planet, getting an electric vehicle is one way to feel like we’re doing something.

The recent U.N. report says it will take massive, systemic changes in energy to avoid the extreme heat, poverty, rising sea levels and food insecurity that will otherwise be our fate by 2030.
