PLATTEVILLE - How goes the war on terrorism, or more precisely, should we go to war against Iraq, Iran and North Korea?
These topics will be discussed, debated and dissected at a University of Wisconsin-Platteville forum, "Axis of Evil?" set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, in the Doudna Hall Little Theater. Audience questions, comments and discussion are encouraged.
