Last week when the women of BlogHer announced the BlogHers Act initiative, I took the time to ask Michelle those important questions. (She’s going to vote for the first time in the 2008 election!)
On the ride home from her Enc1102 class I asked her which global issue was most important. Of course, she said Global Warming. We pondered that in silence for a minute and I asked her which direction we should go to try and solve the Global Warming issue. Her immediate response, as I suspected, was Population Control.
We talked a good bit about why Population Control is a good starting point. We also talked a good bit about the negative aspects of Population Control.
About an hour later, I was driving her across town to hang out with friends and I asked her which four issues would she like to see addressed by the presidential hopefuls. Immediately – Global Warming was her answer with a quick follow up Population Control answer. I said ok, what are the other issues… she was quiet. “There are too many! We need to pick “just one thing”, address that and then move on to the next “one thing”. Ha, it’s Dr K all over again!
