The posts that follow are intended to provide grist for the mill, to inject findings and opinions that add greater richness and complexity to our deliberations about nature and nurture. More info will be provided when we crank up our discussion series early next year.

We will deal with those grassroots issues where we–rather than advocates of interest groups, think tankers, pundits or politicians–can make a difference.
