I really hope I don't have to stay at the Western Front office so late that I can't attend the affirmative action debate. One of my favorate authors, Dinesh D'Souza will be debating Tim Wise (no, I haven't heard of him) at 7 p.m. and I don't want to miss it. If you happen to be in the area here's the details:

I Googled Tim Wise and here was what first came up:
Tim Wise is the Director of the newly-formed Association for White Anti-Racist Education (AWARE) in Nashville, Tennessee. He lectures across the country about the need to combat institutional racism, gender bias, and the growing gap between rich and poor in the U.S. Wise has been called a "leftist extremist" by David Duke, "deceptively Aryan-looking" by a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and "the Uncle Tom of the white race," by right-wing author, Dinesh D' Souza. Whatever else can be said about him, his ability to make the right kind of enemies seems unquestioned.
With Dinesh calling him Uncle Tom it promises to be a fascinating debate - I really hope I can make it!
