Since finishing my master’s degree in political science, I’ve been engaged in the thankless task of job-hunting. If it goes on much longer, I might turn this thing into an “unemployed journalist” blog, which will track the travails of your humble narrator through his inevitable let-downs and negative response emails.

In the meantime, though, I’ve found a couple golden opportunities (which I will not share here, since I am not about to start making the competition for them any worse than it already is). One, in addition to requiring the standard resume and clips, also assigns homework: critique the politics and features section of a recent edition of the publication.

That is today’s “To-Do” item; it will follow a haircut and run to the store for supplies.


I’ve been blogging for several years now, off and on. I’m starting this new one up as a bit of a break from my usual habits of writing long, self-indulgent pieces that nobody reads. Instead, here at Babel Frog, I’m going to link to things I think are important, funny, weird, or terrifying, and maybe throw in a little light commentary of my own. This is, of course, subject to change.
