There are two events on campus tomorrow that relate to our class topic. You may attend one of these events and write up a ONE PAGE ANALYSIS (not summary) of the event and turn it in THURS (2.14.08) by the end of the day (e-mail it to me or turn it in in class). The extra credit is worth 5 points. You may also blog about the events for your post this week they relate to your specific topic. Here are the details:

  1. Foley Institute event: Public panel discussion, “Pork Barrel and Earmarks,” with Scott Frisch, Sean Kelly (both California State University, Channel Islands), and Carolyn Long (political science, WSU Vancouver), CUE 202, 3:15-4:45 p.m. Earmarks and pork, and “bringing home the bacon,” are government programs and services that directly benefit a politician’s various constituencies. Such political deal making has historically been a non-controversial, accepted political practice. However, the issue of “too many earmarks” as a sign of wasteful government spending has exploded into the public’s consciousness recently as their use expanded from a few hundred each year to more than 23,000 in the last two years, including the infamous Alaskan “Bridge to Nowhere.” This distinguished panel of experts will explore the latest trends and challenges to our democratic system stemming from the growing use of earmarks.
  2. Screening of the HBO documentary on Darfur, “Sand and Sorrow,” narrated by George Clooney, CUE 202, 7:00 p.m. Sponsored by the Institute for the Study of Intercommunal Conflict.
