Vegan New Balance shoes

Monday, February 12, 2007 by Jeff

This post serves as a record for those who, like me, are searching for high quality vegan athletic shoes. New Balance (NB) produces several such shoes (although they may still contain glues made with animal ingredients), although this company has also been linked to overseas sweatshops. This website lists those NB shoes which are made in the U.S., and therefore are least likely to be made in sweatshops. I have indicated U.S.-made shoes in bold.

This list comes from New Balance customer service.

From the lonely caverns of Academia

Thursday, February 01, 2007 by Jeff

Well, in the nearly two weeks since David Horowitz added l'il ol' me to his list of admirable...er, abominable leftist academics I've received a flurry of congratulatory support. Friends and colleagues seem downright happy for me, and at least one is decidedly pissed that he didn't make the list. You're on my list, my friend.

Since that first day, Horowitz has exposed two more universities, Penn State and U. Pitt, to the neoconservative light of day. I was approached for interviews by the Tucson Weekly and our campus newspaper, and today I just learned that our graduate student council passed a resolution condemning Horowitz's so-called academic bill of rights. Hear, hear!

What is the best response to an attack like this? Remember, this isn't just against me or a "few bad apples," it's an explicit attempt to change the institutions of academia. If you work in academia, we're talking about you here.

My initial thought was to just stay quiet; I didn't want to fan the flames of controversy. But with the ensuing media attention, the discussions across campus, and a well financed campaign to restrict academic freedom, I've since decided that speaking out is best. But am I, a leftwing indoctrinating idealogue, the best spokesperson against this twit? Where's the chair of my department? The university president? The state Board of Regents? Where are all the academic bigshots? Whose voice are Ma and Pa America hearing out there?
