~Took a cellphone poll: "Is watching TV bad?", and "Censorship is never justified"
~Fishbowl discussion about "Harrison Bergeron" and "The Pedestrian"

Harrison Bergeron:

  • What is good to make everyone equal?
  • Do you think the gov. was also handicapped- was it a communistic gov.?
  • How is the gov. controlling the people here?
  • Is this a utopia: perfect society, or a distopia: non dis-functional perfection?
