Issues
Philosophy 1301 & Information Studies 1371 w/ Colby Glass

There are really two categories here. The first is issues that are currently being discussed in the public forum. The second is irrational beliefs and problem areas that SHOULD be discussed in the public forum. Both may be related to what's happening in the news, so be sure to keep a close eye on my Alternate News Sources. In addition, you should be considering doing something about at least one of these issues. If so, take a look at my page of suggestions, What you can do.
