Igniting Passion for Free Press, Advocacy and Activism.

Last September the Colorado State University school newspaper, The Rocky Mountain Collegian, ran an editorial with a heading that garnered immediate national attention. Ultimately, the editorial heading resulted in many citizens calling for the editor-in-chief of the Collegian to resign and others signing a petition urging that the editor-in-chief be fired. In the spirit of advocacy and activism, I would like to reference you to a blog account of Kristopher Hite's thoughts on his experience with this situation.

The photo of Kristopher Hite shown above, engaging in debate with the college republicans student group, appeared in the Rocky Mountain News on September 27, 2007 with a story entitled "300 at CSU urge firing of editor."  It is from this experience that our blog, Tom Paine's Ghost, would be born.
