Discussion at Brookings Café is a potpourri of topics around a table where anybody can join in the discussion. This show represents a place where the community of Brookings and the surrounding areas can discuss what concerns us as coastal residents.

After a flurry of “letters to the editor” in the Curry Coastal Pilot, the question arises: do we really know what a democracy is? Here the panel tackles the question of different types of democracies, the pros and cons and what this all means to us, citizens of the good ol’ U S of A. It can be confusing since we call our democracy a republic, and sill other countries are autocracies. Do we really have the power as people, or are we merely pawns in a big system that is out of control? That’s the discussion at Brookings Café.

Brookings Café … a discussion about what’s important to you.
