Pressing Ahead: Selecting Stones at Year 2

May 1, 2013


The scientific editors of Selecting Stones are all exhausted as of late.  We’ve been putting in long hours as wage-laborers, and well, y’all know how that goes! So, this year on May 1, we must confess that we simply don’t have the energy at the moment to make as grandiose of a statement as we […]

December 30, 2011


By Anthony Burton You may have noticed over the last several weeks that the scientific editors of Selecting Stones have been quietly publishing a series of articles dealing decisively and profoundly with the important subject of dialectical contradictions in the American heartland.  As always, our aim has been to concretely demonstrate how these contradictions have […]
