Letter to the Editor: UM should have diversity of speakers

I think it is great that Gore and Clinton visited. I hope that the university has also scheduled some dynamic Republicans in the near future, so as to bring a well-balanced view of current events and politics.

The students should be presented with a wide range of opinions, so they can make reflective judgments based on diverse points of view and information based on solid research.

This is what a liberal arts education should provide for the students, and politicians visiting the campus are especially relevant with the upcoming 2008 elections.
