Holy cow is there a lot goings on! A record number of visitors yesterday!
Before I get into UC campaign issues, please take a moment to read Chip’s post and Sarika’s addition about World AIDs Day. While student politics and the fun of it all takes on a heightened importance to those of us who enjoy it, we shouldn’t lose perspective and forget that (as Sarika notes): there are currently 40.3 million people living with HIV/AIDS, 4.9 million people were newly infected this year and 3.1 million people died this year of HIV/AIDS.
Now, to UC shenanigans…
The big event yesterday was the UC debate: read the Crimson article and then the discussion thread from CC and let me know which you think is more helpful to you as a voter. In case I’m not being obvious enough, check out my thoughts on the Crimson’s pre-debate coverage.
Most importantly, the candidates will be joining us starting this afternoon to discuss the first of three questions. Look for those within the next hour, and please please please contribute your thoughts. This is a great chance for anyone who joins us to engage the candidates and share whatever thoughts, frustrations, opinions or questions they want!
C’mon then! Share some wisdom!
