Read the papers, watch the news, check the blogs, and be ready to discuss the week’s issues. And there is always plenty to talk about! Facilitator Joel Ivers will summarize the week’s lead stories, discuss in depth any significant new legislation, and lead you in an informative and vibrant discussion.
