You read the Observer to cut through the politically correct fat and get to the lean meator non-encrusted tofuof those weighty issues that feed your intellect. Then you pull up the World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth event calendar to see when the leading global know-it-all is headed to town with the latest topical poop. Because they have incredible connections (and enough matching place settings), the WACDFW throws about 80 lecture/dinners a year, allowing our humble metroplexors to nibble the experiential knowledge gained by honored statesmen and business powerhouses from around the world: writers, ambassadors, scientists, inventors, anthropologists, philanthropists, bigwig politicians. This weekend Abe Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League and controversial/beloved heavyweight defender of equal racial and ethnic rights is talking about Middle Eastern craziness (and his newest book, The Deadliest Lies) at the Adolphus Hotel, downtown Dallas 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Wed., Dec. 12, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., 2007
