Resources, Thank You

October 20, 2017

One of the joys of this project has been the benefit of insight from so many people who see a slice of your experiences and encounters in this effort. I thought I'd try and consolidate most - if not all - of the resources that have been shared to date (any omissions are purely the fault of my poor memory/organization and not an evaluation of the resource):

  1.  America's lefty political comic Sarah Silverman gets her Bon Jovi on in the trailer of her new show, I LOVE YOU AMERICA, which is streamingon Hulu:

  2. On the road trip music front, DISPATCH America, Location 12 comes highly recommended (and I agree!) for the Delco:

  3. Your Brain on Nostalgia: a fascinating study out of England on the neurological affects of place ('topophilia'!) in our wiring:

  4. On the subject of democratic symbolism, the Post ran a story about some of the hot water the President has been getting into around the flag and patriotism:

  5. Helena, Montana author Russell Rowland's book Fifty Six Counties documents his travels over two years to all of Montana's counties, reflecting on similarities and differences of economic realities and political points of view:

  8. The Reddit subreddit "democracy" has some heady discussions of democracy for the philosopher, wonk and crank alike:
