Critical Leverage is back

Hello there. As some of you know, I have spent the last year and a half as a newspaper reporter in Vermont, and, as a result, have virtually stopped blogging. This is because the overtly political nature of my blog probably violates company policy and because I had less time. 

Throughout this time, I have mostly left the blog inaccessible to all but me. I have published some stories I have written on here — most recently my Nation piece of gay marriage — but other than that, there has been very little activity. 

This, however, is about to change. I have recently been accepted as a Master's candidate in  International Relations  at UMass Boston, and therefore will be able to bring this back to life. Fitting, is that the focus of the blog had been narrowed to international affairs, and media coverage, and  I expect this to be the focus on my research during the next two years. 

Anyway, I still have some time left at my current newspaper job, so I will not be going full speed ahead until mid-Summer.  But the site is now open, so feel free to read around, and look for occasional updates. 

All the best,

Michael Corcoran
