Over the last several months, regular Open Media Boston viewers will have seen my periodic notices mentioning that I was only writing editorials infrequently while completing my MFA in Visual Arts at an area university.
Well, now I'm almost finished with that program and I'm slated to graduate soon. So, I just wanted to let folks know that I expect to be back to writing regularly by late July, and that the OMB staff will continue producing top quality articles throughout the next few weeks while I'm busy.
However, it would be remiss of me not to at least touch on the crisis of the moment - the revelation that the US government is spying on its own citizens at least as much as it spies on countries like China. As Daniel Ellsberg said in the Guardian UK, "In my estimation, there has not been in American history a more important leak than Edward Snowden's release of NSA material – and that definitely includes the Pentagon Papers 40 years ago."
