Got to see Al Gore speak on Saturday Evening

It was at our local Library and really enjoyed the presentation, Q&A and all. Part of the deal for tickets included a copy of his new book "The Future - Six Drivers for Global Change". Looked through the book a bit while waiting for things to start and noted that it is some 550+ pages with almost 200 pages of that being footnotes & index. A whole lot of research in this one, hope to start reading it this week.

I put a link to his web site below for those interested, there is a 3 or 4 minute video that is kinda cool.

1. I voted for the guy

but hell if i would pay money to see him or any politician speak. Rather pay a plumber twice, at least then i would have something worthwhile fixed that i could point to.

2. Well,

each to their own. The proceeds from the event went to support the Library's literacy program for disadvantaged youths and the books came through our local independent bookseller so I didn't feel too bad about the money. That said, I would have paid for the event in any case as I enjoy this type of thing.

3. Or you could have flushed it down the toilet...

 

by giving it to the plumber.

4. I am not as big of an Al Gore fan as I use to be.


I really hope you had a good time. And its good to see the proceeds go to a worthy cause.


On Al Gore's grave site the only words carved into his stone will be the phrase "what could have been."

5. And what would be carved on yours?

Because my gravestone will also say "what could have been".
