CHANGE OF PLANS! Due to the Republican Primary Debate, we're going to jettison the Patriot Act writing in favor of setting up our political blogs, and getting ready to watch the debates. Yes, you're going to be required to watch the debates.
Jess is here to check and review transcripts with you.
Set up Blogs!

Blog Post 1!
For your first blog post, you're going to do some thinking before the Republican Primary Debate. You should go to one or more of the following resources:
Familiarize yourself with the issues the candidates are grappling with. Which of these main issues do you think is the most important issue facing our nation today? Why? Now, choose a candidate who will be participating in the debate tonight, and look at their position on the issue. Respond to it. What is their position? What points do they make that have merit? Where is their position weak to you? What questions do you have?
