Participants are encouraged to bring in relevant newspaper or magazine articles, and/or report on relevant television or radio programs. [D, RP, R]

Join Lifelong Learning's version of "Donnybrook" and come to this class armed with your opinions and ready to do battle with, and listen respectfully to, the wrongheaded opinions of others. Each week a diferent group will act as facilitators by preparing questions and discussion points gathered from the news of that week and the group will take over from there. Once again, be prepared to be caught up in the crossfire by reading and listening to "The Media".
