War on terrorism hits home in north Louisiana
Wiley Hilburn, head of Louisiana Tech University’s journalism department, wrote a column last week for another publication in which he bemoaned the fact that a large number of Tech students had little idea what was going on with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. As the two of us discussed the column during the week, Hilburn said he found it hard to believe that college students weren’t more aware of world events.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Hilburn. “It was almost as if they didn’t care.”
