The event has been moved up to 7:30 pm. Getting there early still remains a good idea.**
Senator Joe Lieberman, former Vice-presidential candidate from Connecticut, will be speaking at Dinkelspiel Auditorium on Sunday, Oct. 18. Lieberman is speaking as this year’s Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture–named after Stanford alum and newspaper reporter who was killed in Pakistan in 2002–on the topic of “The End of the War on Terror.”
While I don’t necessarily agree with all of Lieberman’s political views, I am very glad to see a political figure speaking on campus. It will be interesting to see whether or not Lieberman steers clear of the most controversial issues surrounding the war, but given that the war itself is pretty controversial, it will be hard for him to avoid.
As the flier notes, there are no tickets; instead, it is first come, first gets seated. So get there early if you want to ensure a good view of the senator’s unrivaled jowls.
