Last night PBS aired a segment on FREAK KINGDOM, great to talk at length about Hunter S. Thompson, Mayor Daley, and the endlessly reptilian nature of Richard Nixon; in addition to posting the video, has also excerpted a short selection from the book:

In the column linked below, I discuss the ’s article on “Worst Practices” for managing labor. It’s an admirable document and as a field we need to do a much better job carrying out its principles. cc: .

“The prevailing institutional pressure ... is to talk about how well it went. This compulsion is analogous to what ZZ Packer recently described as the ‘civility trap’ that values ‘order without justice, comity without commitment’”

Yes, I was thinking almost exclusively about my own field when I wrote this, but obviously it’s a huge issue in religious studies as well. And Yesterday I heard from people in music, polisci, and history with similar experiences.

Yes, it’s a stressful time of the semester. Please, though, don’t bash students on social media, even anonymously. Maybe the thing you’re venting about responds to a practice you should reconsider?

Glad you found that stuff. If people aren’t going to be held accountable for the terrible things they write in college, they shouldn’t get to coast on the Harvard degree for the next 15 years either. It works both ways.

I really appreciated the opportunity to reflect on labor practices in academia—and my own complicity with them—for . Thanks to for offering his platform to do so.

And Tim on the Derby spectators as HST saw them: “the sort who on the whole thought the protestors at the DNC had gone to far; who couldn’t understand why certain groups in our society felt so disadvantaged...” Like the rest of the book, a reminder of how little has changed.

Annie Leibovitz on HST during Nixon’s resignation speech: “Every reporter on the planet was at the White House, and Hunter was in the swimming pool at the Hilton with a battery-powered TV set.”
