If you follow this site at all, you may have noticed that the posts have been lagging behind Rob’s weekly newsletter. The reason for this is that I took an unannounced paternity leave – my wife and I had our first child a few weeks ago, and my online life has fallen a bit behind. Such is the way of life with a newborn.
In the coming weeks, I will do my best to pick up the backlog and get us back on track. In the meantime, your patience is greatly appreciated.

“David Sirota is a clear-headed and principled hell-raiser for economic justice.” — Naomi Klein
“After so many decades of fake populism — of revolts by the wealthy, red-state fantasies, and stock-picking grandmas — could we finally be looking at the real thing?” — Thomas Frank
