University of California Early Bird Ranch

Well it's finally happened, my academic past has caught up with me.  Today while collecting eggs I got an email from my friend, mentor, and now co-author that a paper we began back in 2009 has been published in the Journal of Electoral Studies.

This is really exciting news and quite an ego boost, but the best part of the story is that they listed my name with my most current institutional affiliation...Early Bird Ranch.

I like to think that this is just the beginning for our little farm.  Perhaps we can get a grant to dive into issues only our unique institution can tackle.  We all know that when it comes to controversial issues, politicians are chickens...but do they excel on pasture like ours?  Or, would our country be better off if our budget was inflated with forest-raised pork barrel spending instead of the conventional variety   Keep on eye on the journals, this may be our new calling!
