They will take questions at the end, if there is time. Questions will be limited to 30 seconds, that's something like 100 words depending on your tongue facility.

The Civic was sold out, so my friend and I missed the event.

How was it?
 

Re: Congressman Kucinich to Speak at the Civic on Sunday

Inspiring, motivating, a call for the courage to act. Neighborly, fear abating, delineating the causes of violence including our own dietary habits. 60's retro, vanquished communal hippie dreams, sober look at how our drug-dazed young minds let those assasinations scare us away from politics.

Yeah, it was packed full of old farts, many who've been hiding in the woods around Boulder Creek seemingly showed up just to prove that while cynicism and apathy have been running rampant those attitudes haven't been altogether victorious.

Personally, I got a lift in spirit when Marianne Williamson came in; she told me that she had given money to votetoimpeach.org. For me, impeachment is the most important issue of our time. If we fail to demand impeachment now, our message is one of acceptance and approval of this administrations crimes. The future will pay for our silence.

I felt a little sorry for Dennis Kucinich, he had two really hard acts to follow. Politicians have a whale of a time speaking after two inspiring visionaries such as Williamson and Robinson, but I liked his Dept. Of Peace ideas and the way he showed how domestic violence reverberates throughout society.
