Dusk Approaches

Here is what I have to look forward to:

1) The Last Lecture/Baylor Law School Rm. 127/6 pm/Monday, April 19

Sunday the 18th, I will get back from the services for Dan Freed in New Haven. The next day, BLS students have asked me to give a "Last Lecture," which I am really looking forward to. All are welcome; please come! I'm hoping that I will not actually be killed after the speech.

2) Social Worker Training/Advocacy Center, Waco/Thursday, April 22

Last fall, I did ethics training for Baylor's Social Work School. This month, I will provide the same three hours for the social workers at the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims here in Waco. It's a lot of effort, but it's worth it-- these are great people.

3) McLennan County Bar Association/Friday, May 14

I will talk about sentencing. I may also do some liturgical dance. Lawyers eat that stuff up.

4) Jesus on Death Row/New York Ave. Presby. Church, Wash. D.C./Sunday, May 23

On Sunday evening, I will be talking about the death penalty at Lincoln's church, which is just a few blocks from the White House. There will be some other things in DC about then, too-- more about that later.

5) Vanguard High Commencement/Waco/Friday, May 28

I was surprised and honored to be asked to be the commencement speaker at Vanguard this year! There are some great kids graduating, and I look forward to this opportunity.

How's that for variety?:

Law School
Social Work Center
Bar Association
High School

It's a good life...

We've already started the "Vote for the O" campaign for you to give the Summer Commencement speech. Who wouldn't vote for THAT?
It's hard to get mayhemmy about this! We're all in support of your lectures, and I can't get self-righteous about things on which I agree with people! I DEMAND SATISFACTION.

What I want to know is, who is with me in calling for the condemnation of Rob "Slavery is No Big Thang" (except when it is) McDonnell, or perhaps commenting on Johnathan Chait's takedown of the common rightist economic arguments advanced against Democratic administrations, particularly the present one.

Or in the spirit of Ostara, we could get along for once.
I'm with you Lane! No mayhem there, either.
I see mayhem in your upcoming travel schedule. When do you find time to house hunt in the Twin Cities? I suspect random dart throwing at a real estate map may be involved with home selection.
Change McClennan to McLennan...
Slow down Hammer! Don't hurt 'em!
