On May 10, 1906, Charles Scott, a candidate for governor who often campaigned in his Confederate uniform, gave the speech dedicating a new Confederate monument at @OleMissRebels . We’ve searched for the full text of this speech for years. On Friday night, I finally found it.

Great reviews of our @umissouripress volumes, from UNC's Harry Watson & @SarahJPurcell in new MoHR: "A major achievement for [the editors &] all the volume’s authors. They. . . open up striking new insights from an episode that seemed too familiar to teach us anything further."

The flag was at half mast as I dropped my kindergartener off at school today. I tried to hug her, but she rushed inside eager to get to class. Now, I am trying to finish a manuscript on guns and conservation. Let me tell you what I have learned from this work:

For people who thought the muscle group in Righteous Gemstones might be a little unrealistic, I give you the Christian music industry circa 1990

The term "founding fathers" was coined in 1916 by Warren Harding at the RNC. He then used the term often, most notably in his 1921 inaugural address. This chart is interesting for showing just how fast that term became widely used (and how widely used "framers" was in the 19c.)

This is a great example of confusing the justificatory story the political movement that traveled under the label “originalism” tells about itself with actual history. Great work on the actual history coming by @cterbeek and @TheGNapp , among others.

Americans are tired of changing their clocks twice a year. When winter comes, nobody wants to be sitting in the dark. Let’s make Daylight Savings Time permanent and free ourselves from this outdated ritual.

We all know that state unis are locked in a struggle with increasingly intransigent, radical-right legislatures. But I want to talk for a minute about how much damage is done by university leadership in effectively rationalizing & normalizing fanatical behavior.

People wander into our lives and wind up playing such outsized, unexpected roles. My friend @garrett_felber is so fearless and smart. I was lucky to work with him. He's taught me so much about how to care for others and imagine different futures.

I've struggled to figure out if, when, and how to say this, but I'm leaving academia at the end of my fellowship next year. Sending gratitude to my mentors, love to my comrades and friends, and solidarity to those struggling with the contradictions within higher education.

Social media doesn't allow for the depth and breadth of reflections from a weekend in Coos County, but I wanted to share a few lessons/stories with you from the campaign trail. A 🧵 #MainStreetConversations #orpol #or4
