LoCA 6: GreeN, Growth, Governmentality
I don't know where the heck you are, but June has barreled into Champaign-Urbana like a trumpeting sexpot.
It is loud with birds chirping, bright with endless sparkling sun. Weighing heavy under its own heat, it is unabashedly sultry and hot, haters be damned. June flaunts its flashy colors across fields and trees, sending up strawberries and mint and chives with abandon and scents that inspire aimless walks and long siestas.
Following suit, this month’s luscious LoCA has been launched, bursting forth with juicy articles centering around, upon, or somewhere adjacent to one of its three themes of green, growth, and governmentality, with a nod to Father's Day.
June's Lost Control Again offers up fresh takes on the goodness of rain gardens that you need to pass on to all of your friends, on St. Louis sonic master Kristeen Young, on Common Core’s unacceptable failings to the common student, on our dear Dottie, on the difficulties presented by liking both purple and people, and on a few other topics (including "what the hell is governmentality!?"). Once again, this delicious concoction was stewed to perfection in the gurgling cauldron of tenderizing library scienceness stoked by Rebecca Bobecca.
Read. Discuss. Comment. Pass on. Enjoy.
Happy ambling about in the June loveliness!
