does anybody here know about this program in indiana that mimics the ABA's cleo program. has anybody been thru this program or know anybody who has? have you/they benefitted from it? i'd just like to know as much as possible about it; hopefully from someone who's been thru the program.
thanks so much!

that gets a big 'amen!' from me joe. it would DEFINITELY be nice to have a president that actually can DO the job...not just look like they should say '...but i play a president in real life.' know what i mean?
oh well. somehow the US is still standing. lol

i was just hired in March by the small firm i'm at as a file clerk, but as a temp to hire. this way i have options after i graduate this summer. i know i have a possible full-time job waiting for me w/this firm if i want to stay here in AZ and work until it's time for law school apps and school itself, and i also look upon it as a fall-back of sorts if a job where i want to go to ls at doesn't work out until i actually go.
but i'd definitely talk to you supervisor ASAP about when you were planning to move if you're planning a move. i hope you're also getting yourself set up in whatever city you're moving to also in the meantime. if you try to set yourself up now? you'll have a less stressors to deal w/aside from your first day at school.
just my thoughts.

well, i know that where i was growing up at the time regan was in office, not many people from my working class city were benefitting economically. and i do realize what jones was saying, wolf? but i was just using myself as a basis point. just wanted to clarify myself. thanks!

now i totally realize that this school obviously wants to participate in the time honored tradition of naming a school after a president or some prominent historical figure, but i think i'd stop and reconsider on this one. i'm sure regan was a nice man, but given the complexities of his title he held along w/other factors, i think they should definitely be sure they wanna name their school after him.

well it's a good thing we don't run under a dictatorship then, although i'm sure there are people out there who'd beg to differ. lol
but you're right in posing the thought of how to put a definition to the words 'responsible journalism'. it's like trying to put a concrete meaning to the term 'first amendment right' so-to-speak sometimes, you know? i mean, if that's really so hard to do or can be done somewhat 'abstratctly', then so can't 'equal protection under the law' be used in the same manner along w/almost any of the other amendments w/the exception of giving women and non-whites the right to vote? that's the only concrete thing i've ever seen when it comes to the constitution.
if the drafters of that sucker only knew what was gonna happen over 200yrs after they wrote that....

sorry jonesy, but not everybody benefitted from the regan era. take me for example. during his seating in office? a lot of the education programs i and other elementary school children had were taken away from us because the funding they got went towards those stealth bombers that never seemed to work along w/the defense budget. does anybody remember that?
on saturday mornings, i'd go to the junior high that housed my enrichment program where i expanded on the 2 foreign languages i was learning in regular school and was getting help w/any kind of homework i had from the week prior. this was a major help for a black kid from the worst city to live in America in at the time. (ever been to Gary, IN?) as soon as Regan dropped the axe on education, literally, the next week? Saturday school was no more. no more spanish, french, orchestra (i was learning the cello in addition to my violin at the time), and most importantly, nobody to help me w/my homework. my parents had both only graduated from h.s. and i had to basically teach them what i learned in school - at least where math and science were concerned - and try to learn things on my own. not easy when you have ADD...just w/o a name yet.
so not everybody benefitted from the Regan era, i'm sorry to say. and you could totally tell by the kids who went there, too. grades started to fall, kids' attitudes got worse, i could go on for quite some time about this.
and no political science teacher had to tell me this. sorry to sound so sarcastically cynical.
