Tomorrow, John Dean will be speaking...
He will be speaking in the town next door to me about his new book "Broken Government."

The Palos Verdes Democratic Club is his sponsor...

It promises to be standing room only, and I will be there...

Pictures and story to follow, tomorrow!

10. My dear Catchawave...
Here's the scoop, just between you and me...I called my friend up today to say I'd be there...

And he said it'll be real crowded...

So I said, I'll come early...

And he said, we'll be setting up...

And I said I'll help you!

I'm so there!

:toast:

5. This should be brilliant.
I await your report.

I think he's a great man. But I wish he'd join the Democratic party.

12. I wish he would too, my dear Gregorian...
But in a way, it's almost better that he doesn't...

After all, he's a Republican...and he's turned against them... ;)

I have a lot of respect for him too, and have for a very long time...

Yeah, I was amazed to see that he was going to be here where so many folks can hear him!

Usually these fab events happen far away...

9. My dear California Peggy!
PVDC is good people, and I've waited a long time to fit that opening in a germane thread. :)
John Dean is a thoughtful guy , and what he has to say will scare the bejeesus out of you.
Have fun!

13. that would be one I would attend.
lucky you! I have seen Chomsky twice, Howard Zinn, Amy Goodman, and Al Franken speak and that is it. I stood in line to see Michael Moore but there was no more room at the venue during the DEM convention in Boston in 2004. :hi:

18. You're lucky, Peggy...
John Dean has become a hero of mine -- along with all the other true Constitutional scholars. We really need them now.

23. Thanks for the alert!
I just checked Audible.com and that book is available there (half price!), so I'm downloading it right now. I also have his "Conservatives Without Conscience", in that same audible.com format.

Yesterday, I had re-watched Oliver Stones "Nixon", and had been thinking about John Dean earlier this morning! Now, what are the odds....?

24. You're welcome, my dear pnorman!
You must be in tune with current events!

Now, cue the music from "The Twilight Zone."

27. "in tune with current events"
I try to do that. I haven't watched TV for about 10 years, but my computers are almost always on-line. And DU is my DEW system!

28. I just started listeng to it!
Fascinating stuff, so far. Also on that MP3 player, is: "The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court" By: Jeffrey Toobin. I was about halfway through that one, but I put it on hold for the John Dean book. Especially for side by side comparisons such as this, paper books are a lot better. But there are still definite pluses for this Audible.com format.

25. yes, please report!
Glad to see there is such a thing in Palos Verdes these days. . . When my family first moved there, there were only 3 Dem families on the entire hill, and Nixon's best friends lived frighteningly close to us. .

26. It's still overwhelmingly Republican up there...
But there are more Dems than ever before!

I will be reporting later on...

And the meeting itself is down here in Redondo Beach...

They wanted to make it easy to get to!

I expect a huge crowd!
