Stay Informed: Letters from an American

This is a daily newsletter from historian Heather Cox Richardson. With a decided leftest slant, she does an excellent job of untangling the rhetoric and maneuvering that politicians ( mostly Republican politicians) are using to obfuscate issues confronting contemporary America.


Nothing sensational, simply a solid exposition and analysis from this Harvard PhD, College Professor and author.

In her words:

I'm a history professor interested the contrast between image and reality in American politics. I believe in American democracy, despite its frequent failures .... This (newsletter) is a chronicle of today’s political landscape, but because you can’t get a grip on today’s politics without an outline of America’s Constitution, and laws, and the economy, and social customs, this newsletter explores what it means, and what it has meant, to be an American.

Well worth a read, and worth supporting with a subscription.
