I mentioned the other day UCA President Tom Courtway's
promotion of a one-sided "forum" on medical marijuana
featuring only opponents of the ballot measures. Turnout was scant, judging by Twitter photos, and the session likely was unilluminating thanks to the one-sided nature of the show.
Now comes an event at the Northwest Arkansas Community College
that a higher education institution could be proud of hosting: A forum featuring speakers from both sides sponsored by Public Discussion NWA
and the Benton County Bar Association
. Public Discussion is an activity of Conflict Resolution Services
. Kudos, too, to Surgeon General Greg Bledsoe,
who is willing to mix it up with adversaries.
