I normally don’t blog about my employer, Duke University (I work at its academic publisher Duke University Press), because I don’t like to co-mingle my online and offline worlds. It’s a general good rule for any blogger to have that separation to avoid any possible conflict of interest or interpretation that your personal blogging is being done on behalf of one’s employer.
However, in this case it is newsworthy to report that Duke’s News Service has put out a press release that dropped at the same time that Race to the Ballot came to Durham on Friday, and that alliances of student groups at Duke participated in the rally and forum held at NCCU against Amendment One.

Hey, it’s me. I don’t know if you remember me or not, but we used to be pretty good friends. Do you remember that awkward high schooler who stood at the dais of the Senate back in 2007 when he was a Senate page? You remember, the one who had just gotten a haircut because his father said that he should look presentable at the legislature. The one who had long, brown, curly hair before then. You don’t remember me? But I stood right at the front of the Senate sessions, just to the right of the now-governor Beverly Perdue.

Edward Horgan, a well-known Irish activist and former Irish Defense Force officer, has had his 10-year, multiple-entry U.S. visa revoked without explanation. Horgan and others believe it is because of his principled stand against the U.S. use of renditions, and in particular, the use of Shannon Airport in western Ireland as a stopover for U.S. rendition flights. The Obama administration should be ashamed for its behavior in keeping Mr. Horgan from entering this country.
