An Interesting Event?

I was browsing through recent events on campus and I thought this was... interesting, to say the least:

On Thursday, February 25th at 6:00 p.m. the College Republicans will be showing "Not Evil, Just Wrong," a new documentary by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney in Hibbard 101 which seeks to "provide a different perspective on one of today's hot topics, Climate Change."

Apparently there will also be free root beer floats and drawings for books.

I unfortunately have to work, but I thought it was extremely interesting and a great opportunity for our class! If any of you go, let me know how it is!


  1. Just a quick note that I've added a link to the piece I mentioned in class this morning: "Why I'm Leaving the Senate" written by Evan Bayh for the NYT Op-Ed page. Right now it's the first item under the "Links of Interest" heading. If I could, I'd add a label to my comment, something like "unproductive polarization". . . . and I don't mean the north or south poles!

  2. I read the article by Evan Bayh, and I agree with him on a lot of issues. Coming from little Willard, WI, I never had any serious debates about politics, but we did discuss presidential candidates individually. Parties didn't matter; we were more concerned with the morals of the individuals. I was shocked when I came to college and met people who said, "I'm a Republican and if you're not, you're a terrorist," or "Democrats care about the people while Republicans are heartless bastards." I wish I could say I am exaggerating, but I'm not. Both parties have something to offer, and I take different sides depending on the issue. Bipartisanship is a fine government, but we need to hear both sides. I especially liked Bayh's comment that if we expect an "all or nothing" political atmosphere, we shouldn't be surprised when we get nothing.

  3. Does anyone happen to know how long the documentary is?

  4. Elizabeth, according to the Internet Movie Database it runs for 90 minutes.
