Red White & Blue Hens

College students in Delaware who think right is right, and left is wrong. We study hard, party hard, and play hardball.

The Blog In Review

Mike McKain does a great job of summing up this semester of blogging:
As the year winds down, I thought I would take a moment to thank all of the blog contributors, Democrat, Republican and otherwise, who have used these forums to advance the political dialogue on campus. When we created our blog, we had no idea the Republicans would follow suit so quickly or that both sites would take off in the way that they did. We now receive comments from students and professionals from across the country, all bringing their own unique perspectives and experiences to the table.

I think, through these blogs, that we have found that when the dialogue is open and civil, we can find areas of agreement or, at times, simply agree to disagree while respecting the ideological viewpoints of the other group or individual. We can only hope that the public dialogue will follow suit and migrate away from the bitterness that plagues the mainstream debates of today.

What we do is important. Though we are, in the end, just college students, many with the same experiences, who engage in the same activities, listen to the same music, and watch the same shows, the blogs have provided an outlet for our political passions. We have progressed interest and the dialogue on campus, hopefully while raising awareness of the critical issues that face the nation today.

I encourage everyone, Republican and Democrat alike, to remain active on the blogs throughout the summer and into next year. At the very least, I will continue posting on this site, and hopefully others will join me. And yes, sorry my Republican friends, I will continue to plague your site as well.

I hope everyone has a great summer...happy blogging!
