“Apply Liberally” started as a politics column in The Middlebury Campus.  I post electronic versions of those here, as well as my reactions to more immediate news items and some other, random thoughts that seem as though they might be worth reading.

For more of my writing, check out my personal website and order my spy thriller, The Men Behind the Curtain, described variously as “a true edge-of-your-seat political thriller,” “a brilliant mixture of political intrigue and good old-fashioned action and suspense,” and “liberal poop.” I’m currently working on a new book about modern success stories about energy and the environment along with my father, Tom Drennen
