I posted a note in my InfiniteRegress.tv blog yesterday, about ABC News' misreporting of the results of its own post-debate polls - in particular, ABC somehow forgetting to mention that Ron Paul came in first.
Now, I've written political posts before, and many critical of the media, but I have to say I had a special zest and focus when writing that post - and listing it on Digg, where it now has more than 800 Diggs. Wiltse's Sedition stirred that part of me that knows that being a worthwhile professor is more than teaching your students in the classroom - it is taking a stand on important public issues, and using your voice to bring issues to the public's attention.
This, of course, is the lesson Professor Schrag taught us in Sedition. I am grateful for having been reminded of it at Sunday's splendid performance in Westport.
