The antidote to apathy

An interesting seven-minute video on political/civic apathy is Dave Meslin's TED talk of the above title.  TED means Technology, Education, Design.  Every one that I have looked at has provided some new perspective on the problems of today.  One of his interesting points is that newspapers often don't provide as much when and where for civic events as they do for entertainment events.  Fortunately, the Duluth News Tribune is not one of these.
