Blog 4: The Nanny State
Read one of the following two articles. Choose the one that seems LESS likely to match your viewpoint. So, if you tend to think the federal government is too big for its britches, read “Three Cheers for the Nanny State.” If you tend to think government regulation is useful and helpful, read “The Tyranny of the Nanny State.”
Read at least 3 blogs, and write a thoughtful and substantive comment on each! ONE of the three must be from the list on the Blog Roundup page of Wowza blogs! Take note of their wit, humor, use of language, and deep thinking, and use them to make your future blog posts better. Or, if they so inspire you, go back and make your current blog posts better.
