Current blogger:   Lauren is secretly a very lazy activist who gets tired even reading all the emails that her favorite organizations send her.  She is always trying to figure out how to spend the least amount of effort getting the maximum gain on causes she cares about, and does a lot of research on the topic.  Starting this blog seemed like the most sensible way of being lazy.  No, really.  You can send her feedback at her gmail account (laurenhat is her username).
