"No Man's Land"

San Diego State University (29 May 2005)
"When I was in Iraq, I thought I'd get back home and get to campus and have great, enlightening discussions about the war and terrorism, politics and history," said Osuna, who enlisted after graduating from high school in Calexico and now studies civil engineering at San Diego State. "But all anyone wants to talk about is the price of gas and 'American Idol,' " he said. "Reports about soldiers being killed and wounded over there are very real to us; we feel the pain of the people still there. "These young kids on campus don't have a clue about what's going on in the world. They don't read newspapers, don't follow the news."
