Times Talk: “Executive Overreach or Judicial Tyranny: You be the Judge”

EVERYONE IS WELCOME to Times Talk for Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 1 p.m. in the lobby of the Lawrence W. Tyree Library.

Times Talks are open conversations about important and issuess in the news, and are part of Santa Fe College’s efforts to promote greater civic engagement on campus.  They are an opportunity for students, faculty members, and other members of the college community to sit as equals and exchange views on important issues in a casual, informal and civil environment.

Times Talks are moderated each time by a volunteer faculty or student facilitator. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to participate in the sort of vigorous and engaging discussion of important issues that is needed in a democracy.

For those who plan to attend, these articles will provide you with background for our discussion:
