A little about me
I’m not a political scientist, but I have taught political science. I’m not a partisan, but the Democrats cares about what I care about. I’m a journalist, writer and citizen. I’m a former visiting professor of public policy at Wesleyan University; a fellow at the Yale Journalism Initiative; a contributing writer for the Washington Monthly; a contributing editor for Religion Dispatches; and senior editor at Alternet. My byline has been in news outlets big and small, mostly small. I live in the greatest city on the east coast, New Haven. Follow me @johnastoehr.
