As you know, in this blog I frequently discuss how to cut through the clutter of college information. I have encouraged readers to get past the magazine rankings and separate the realities of college admissions from the myths. So I would like to make a recommendation for a blog with a somewhat similar perspective—but about politics— that is worth reading. A former colleague named Chris Johnson blogs about the current political scene and how the issues seem to get lost in the shouting. Chris’ posts are extremely well-written and thought provoking, so please check out his “When Tactics Become Policy” blog.
