Here in Austin, the students at our wonderful University of Texas like to take charge and freely demonstrate their right to protest. They don’t really NEED a good reason, or have to have a strong following, they just like to protest. Typically, it comes in the form of students speaking on the West Mall, holding banners, sitting on the steps of the Tower, all that good stuff which is fine and dandy. But today…well, they’re really just phoning it in in my opinion.
Students at UT are staging a protest. To show they dissapproval with the President’s push for war, students are going to “Walk out of their classes at 11:30.” Of course, classes are pretty much halfway finished by now, and the wonderful thing about college…your professor probably doesn’t even give a shit. That’s the joy of college, you get what you put in. You leave, your professor doesn’t care, because you’ll fail and it will be your fault and he still gets paid. But damnit, he’ll get the message…right?
Oh, and just in case you DO agree with the President’s push for war, there’s something you can do, too. Just show your support by…staying…in…class?
Kids these days.
