Fruits & Votes
is the Web-log of Matthew S. Shugart
("MSS"), Professor of Political Science, University of California, Davis.
Perspectives on electoral systems, constitutional design, and policy around the world, based primarily on my research interests.
Also experiences with growing many varieties of fruit (always organic) and other personal interests. Please see the Mission Statement for more. (There is also an explanation of the banner.)
Other "planters" have been invited to contribute. Please check the "Planted by" line to see the author of the post you are reading.
Join the conversation. Comments are always open. Except, that is, when Word Press mysteriously shuts them down, which happens with distressing frequency.
Henry Droop on the "moderate non-partisan section"
Madison on "dangers from abroad" and "the fetters... on liberty"
Old fruitsandvotes.com links no longer work, due to the move to fruitsandvotes.wordpress.com.
All old posts are still up at the new site, but require using the search function to locate.
