Patriotic Students

Maybe campus apathy isn’t as bad as I thought. The Kentucky Kernel (UK’s campus newspaper) reports that the UK Student Government passed a resolution against the Patriot Act. The resolution was controversial, passing by one vote after heated discussion and a deadlock on the first vote. In an unfortunate sign that some people still don’t get it, the resolution’s opponents said “SG should not issue opinions about national policy but should focus on things that affect students specifically.” It’s good to see that a (slim) majority realizes that shredding the Constitution does affect them.
