My Notre Dame brothers and sisters, as you may or may not be aware, on Oct. 30, Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will be holding competing political rallies on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Seeing as the vast majority of Stewart and Colbert’s audience are college students (and according to my rough estimates, most of the students on our campus are fans of one, if not both comedians), we should have a Notre Dame bus trip to Washington to show our support at these rallies.

In these most turbulent times of our nation’s political history, I believe it is of the utmost importance that we, the voice of tomorrow, take a step toward deescalating the political climate’s inevitable arrival at the boiling point. By the time you are reading this, I will have contacted the Student Activities Office formally with a request to arrange a bus trip be made. If any of you share my vision, please echo my sentiment by contacting SAO via e-mail to let our wishes be known. An event like this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity — don’t pass it up.
