Our new topics list, for May 12 to September 1, is now posted on this website under the “Full Mtg Schedule tab and elsewhere. BUT, I’ve amended it, so the hard copies passed out last meeting are wrong. The change is just the order of a few August topics so our “how biased is academia” and “how biased is the news media” are no longer back-to-back.
I’ll have corrected hard copies to pass out next Monday. The August topics are now:
July 28: How politically-biased is academia, and to what effect?
Aug 4: Is it time to abolish the death penalty?
Aug 11: Are criticisms of Obama from the Left valid?
Aug 18: Is the news media too biased to fulfill its civic duty?
Aug 25: Assessing Lyndon Johnson’s presidency.
Thanks again to Linda and Bruce for helping to select topics.
