Students to debate Katrina response

Students will be discussing the government’s response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster relief and other hurricane-related issues at the Alumni Plaza today at noon.

The debate, sponsored by the UA Debate Club, will give students a chance to argue about a range of questions such as “Was the response to Katrina racially driven?” “Was media coverage of the disaster ‘fair and balanced?’” “Who do you think is to blame?”

The debate will take place in front of Heritage Hill at the Alumni Plaza.
