(2) Boston Globe Video Catches John Miller’s Teach-In: Here’s a nice video from Boston.com, the website of the Globe, featuring yours truly at around 2:17, looking like I’m trying to walk away from John Miller’s teach-in, when in fact I’m probably doing something really important like distributing John’s handouts or something. The talk was a great success! A great crowd. Hat-tip to Mingus Mappes.

That’s all for now.
