This week marks only 38 weeks to go until midterm elections. This, in the opinion of your editors, is the time for active involvement. We offer you three events for your consideration, attendance, and further engagement. The first is February 15, a presentation on Free Speech and the First Amendment at Rackham by Joshua Johnson of NPR’s 1A. On March 11, we have a P.E.G. presentation at the Jewish Community Center about the expansion of Medicaid in Michigan by Dr. John Ayanian, of the University of Michigan. But lest we not have only serious times in this winter of our discontent, please remember to attend our third event: the P.E.G. Party supporting the ACLU Promote the Vote at Touchstone Cohousing February 21. Further information can be found in our events section. Looking forward to seeing you all!
