Dinesh D'Souza at Union Theater Tonight




















"Hey everybody -- In less than 24 hours, Dinesh D'Souza will be speaking at Memorial Union. Again, his lecture starts at 7:30 PM. The pre-program is at 4:00 in the Main Lounge at MU - and should be a good time as well.
If you don't have tickets yet, don't worry. There are still enough available that you'll be able to pick them up at the MU box office tomorrow no problem. After 7:20, if there are still seats available, we'll start letting people in without tickets."

D'Souza served in the Reagan administration and authored Letters to a Young Conservative, so it promises to be a good show given the campus political climate these days. Perhaps the photo above is a preview - we'll see.

I'm intrigued to hear what Dinesh has to say these days. Letters was a decidedly level-headed introduction to a sort of classical conservatism with a witty edge, but without much brimstone. His latest book seems to indicate a more blunt approach in his politics:

"His most recent book, which will come out in January, is "The Enemy At Home: The Cultural Left and its Responsibility for 9-11."

Hmmm...While I have not yet read the book, I hope D'Souza hasn't abandoned his eloquence and reasoned approach to a reactionary Coulterish desire to snag a book deal and speaking engagements.

I hope to make it to the Union for a chance to decide for myself.
