I didnt always want to become a conservative. But what could I do? I grew up revering Reagan, the tax cut and limited government. I learned to loathe the Reverend, the welfare state and administrative bureaucrats before I was out of diapers. I was never taught that the earth was my mother or that true patriots burn the flag, spit on the Constitution and protest against the soldier who died for their freedom. Instead, I was a victim of circumstance. For heavens sakes, I was born white. And beyond that, I come from a modest middle-class family, lived in Omaha, Neb. my entire life and I attend church on a regular basis.

A coffee shop in the library would create more harm than good for Rolvaag Library and the hundreds of students who use it each day.
