I just realized why the title “Democracy Matters” sounded so familiar. Golden State Warriors basketball player, Adonal Foyle, has a foundation called “Democracy Matters.” I believe I’m going to keep the blog URL, but I should probably at least change the title of the blog to avoid confusion. Doh! What makes this strange is that I thought I Googled that title last night to make sure that nobody was using it. Very strange.
I had planned to blog about Foyle’s Democracy Matters a few months ago. I was intrigued by an interview I’d read with Foyle in AlterNet and appreciated his commitment to getting young people involved in politics and his support of progressive causes. I’ll certainly provide students with a link to the real Democracy Matters because he’s doing some interesting work and talking about democracy in a way that I find valuable.
Any suggestions for a new title?
Update: I’ve tentatitively decided to change the blog title to Rhetoric and Democracy, at least for tonight. Hopefully I’ll think of something better tomorrow.
