This letter is in response to Anayo Ordu’s Tuesday column, “Voter apathy is absolutely pathetic.”
The Israeli government is in an uproar about United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visiting Iran for a summit hosted by the Non-Aligned Movement, a group of 120 countries that formed during the Cold War. Many countries are those the United States has sought to marginalize.
I was on campus yesterday and picked up a copy of the Alligator, which had a story on the cover titled “NASA sends rover to Mars, awes students.” This is good because students don’t know or care much about space flight.
