SMU's Tate Lecture Series Gets Its Buzz On
I was just on the SMU Web site and noticed that yesterday, the university announced the complete roster for the 2009-10 Willis M. Tate Distinguished Lecture Series, which tends to sell out fast -- as evidenced by the fact that the first installment (featuring Pultizer winner Thomas Friedman, CNN's Fareed Zakaria and moderator David Gergen) and the last one (Diane Keaton) are already, well, sold out. But tickets are still available here for the great Christopher Buckley (in November), Buzz Aldrin (in December), U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas (date TBD) Ian Bremmer, former National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley and Claire Shipman (January), neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor (February) and Kenneth Cole (April).
