Protests Fizzle

"Protestors object proposed NJ cuts" (The Daily Targum, April 21) was the headline in The Targum, but nowhere does it tell you how many students actually protested or even how many gathered to watch.  Journalism 101 is that you always give a crowd estimate -- especially when, as in this case, you could count on your fingers and toes the number of students involved. The numbers were few and the arguments were weak.  If this is the best students can do, then I suspect there will be very little resistance to budget cuts and rising tuition in New Jersey.
