Cornel West was at Wittenberg (college not too far from me) speaking a couple weeks ago, didn’t get to go, pretty bummed. Then I found David Barsamian was in my area speaking Tuesday. Wish I could have gone to see him, but I was in class too late to make it to Yellow Springs in time. Would have been awesome to hear his lecture/speech. For those of you who do not know, he is defined as “a progressive political intellectual”. He always has some pretty interesting things to say even if I don’t agree with him all the time.
