Commentator Heather Dune Macadam is an adjunct professor, which means that she teaches part-time at three different institutions of higher learning but still has to get a summer job to make ends meet. She's just applied for a job at Home Depot. Macadam is the author of the novel The Weepng Buddha, published by Akashic Books.
