For your last journal in this course I want you to pick a localized social issue from one article. This article can be from an online news source or from a newspaper, but it must be from a reputable source (No TMZ etc). Briefly discuss the issue and state your position about the issue. After you have addressed your position, also address the reasons why you are either for or against it, and what factors you considered to arrive at your conclusion. After doing this, consider any opposing arguments to your position, then discuss how you would disprove or counter them. Please cite your sources.
To find a localized issue look for news/current events in California, Southern California, CSUF, neighboring cities, a club or sport you are involved in etc.
