You can email me at clara[dot]boling[at]gmail[dot]com.

If you tried that and the message wouldn’t send, be sure to replace the words [dot] and [at] with the actual symbols. In theory, robots who want to sell me discount oxycontin and borrow my bank account number will not be able to break this advanced code and send me data-munching viruses.

Clarafication is also on Facebook here, and it would be nifty if any of the hits on that page were people besides me.

I used to get a lot of email in college because I joined every listserv that offered me a Jolly Rancher on Incoming Freshman Day, but now my campus account has expired and it’s mostly just President Obama or the charity where I used to work asking for money.

Just think--if you send me mail, it's like being the president!
