The other night I attended a student government meeting that dealt with the validity of a certain group on the funding board which is supposed to deal with bringing progressive issues to the campus population. There was a bill in contention to remove this group because it brought in a speaker that was anti-semetic, anti-American, and anti-troops. What I heard that night was a lot of debate that I should have heard a year ago before the controversial event took place. This nine hour meeting made me ponder the true meaning of being progressive.
