    That seems totally reasonable and fair to me. For those who cannot go to an OWS event because of ideals or other reasons, she offers them an option for extra credit, too.

    Of course, I think giving extra credit much past high school is babying young adults way too much, but that is another issue.

    This is going to benefit them how? As opposed to actual study time.

    Do you understand being a eye witness to history?


    if it were a tea party rally you would be cheering him or her.

    according to an unspecified "email received by the blaze"... well, that must make it true.

    and even if it is...

    is it mandatory?

    nope...

    from your "link:

    so don't worry... tea people get extra credit, too.
