Nice blog. I enjoy reading it.

Well said, Jonathan. Surprised the reporter or any of the other commentators out there accept unquestioningly the imputation–without any evidence beyond apparent malice aforethought–that Stan willfully distorted the record.

hi Jonathan

I was looking at some 1925 cost of living surveys and they had a question about ice, so I thought of you. How is that project going?

Clumping through your blog is stirring up my bittersweet memories as a Humanities instructor – and reminding me that when I left it was with good reason. It’s easy to look back now and remember those shining moments when students let something in. And easy the ignore the much more frequent “what’s it to you if a text in class – I’m paying to be here” moments. :/

Just doing some casual geneaology research and ran across your blog–one of my great-grandfathers was supposed to have been killed in a steel mill accident (possibly involving a reel of wire) in Pueblo, CO during the time frame your book covers (around 1929/1930), but not much else is known. I’m kind of curious about the overall context, so I may have to take a looks at your book.

Hi, Jon. A colleague at Canisius directed me to your posts on MOOCs. I’m glad that she did. Thanks for the information and insight. This is a battle that must be undertaken and won if we wish to have an educated populace. I certainly don’t want our education system (K-higher ed) controlled by the 1% and their friends, the technocrats. Maybe their intentions are good, but the profit-seeking vultures will highjack any good intention for their selfish interests to the public’s detriment.
