the BIG question

If you like the kinds of big questions we try to ask and discuss here at Cambridge Common, you'll love the BIG Question, a new weekly discussion at Phillips Brooks House that tries every week to ask what we don't have time to ask, eat pizza, and discuss. Today, at 5 PM (at PBH), the question will be: How do we reconcile our shopping carts with our consciences? Check it out!

Here's a suggestion: fill your shopping cart with donations to a non-profit organization! Almost every non-profit website has a feature that lets you donate in the name of a friends, loved one, etc. It makes a great gift!

Check out www.h-give.com to find a non-profit that is right for you, as well as info on groups that are helping out on campus.

golis, don't forget to note that your fave columnist Henry Seton is running the big question series!

I'm guessing that anon's comment is meant to question Golis' motives in plugging this event. Is it just an insider hook-up? Nope. Don't think so. . .

Big Questions is a forum for starting discussion about topics that don't seem to get enough air time. It welcomes people from ALL sorts of opinion backgrounds. Sounding a little like the blog? Thought so.

Like Big ?'s, this blog is also a place where people of all walks of opinion (bigoted, enlightened. . . no, kidding: insider, outsider, observer, politick, left, right, center, questioning) can gather to discuss.

No wonder Golis thought that the CC readership might be interested in the event. And, its no shocker that Golis would be a fan of Seton's column (which is also frequently devoted to examining topics that often get buried under: Larry Summers Gets Married! and Alston Expansion: Think Big!).
