Democracy in Clinton, Iowa on

Jon Margolick and Josh Fryday are the founders of, a valuable new blog focused on the nature of citizenship in contemporary America. They very graciously agreed to run "Democracy in Clinton, Iowa." Jon even edited it, eliminating both the run-on sentences and my problematic usage of the word "prismatic" early on in the piece. (My dad had also questioned its usage, but I was too proud to agree with him. Sorry, Dad. You were right.)

The piece is available on CitizenThink here: Parts 1 and 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, and Part 7.
