Happy Tuesday! Today we are encouraged to remember our past, but we should also be mindful of our present.
Let’s get informed.

Here is one way they are considering paying for it:

Bob Kerrey and Deb Fischer are having a debate at the Omaha community playhouse. I’m gonna go—want to go with me? Reservations required.


National News

Chicago public school teachers are on strike. Like, all of them. Today marks day 2:

Now that the RNC and DNC are over, Obama and Romney are still pretty close in overall polls (but there are some details that say otherwise):

As you survive this busy week, I encourage you to be mindful of what’s happening outside of Creighton, because they really are things that affect us and our neighbors. Thanks for being informed members of your communities.
