He’s Baaaaack!

<Dusting off cobwebs and settled dust off easy chair>


Well now, this place is a little bit in disrepair after being unused for 4 years, but the interwebtubes have a habit of holding onto things FOREVER so I decided maybe its time to scratch the old writer’s itch and reactivate this blog. The world has flipped upside down since I last wrote a Monticello blog post. We as a nation have lost our collective minds and are being abused by the 1% who control everything and the 30% who want to be 1% who manage all the businesses for them. Politics has exposed nasty fault lines in our society and with the economy flushed down the toilet and heading toward every bad conspiracy movie’s inevitable dark ending, I felt like a Jeffersonian voice should at least provide play by play for the destruction of our nation.

So kick back, relax and enjoy the new Monticello. I plan to cover local and national politics, the marijuana reform movement, Occupy America and more. Feel free to read the archives below, theyre ancient and dusty but might be fun reading for newer friends who never saw this blog before. If something catches your eye tell me about it in an email to

Students for a Free Tibet

I had an opportunity to have a conversation with my friend Matt Browner-Hamlin about the work he does as an organizer for Students for a Free Tibet, one of the leading organizations in the Tibet independence movement. Matt just got back recently from a trip to India where SFT held a training camp in Dharmsala, India. Use the Odeo Flash player below to listen to the interview.
