A Very—What's A Neutral Word Here—Manageable Local Readings Schedule
Oh man it is August so soon, and to celebrate, famous socialist bookstore Politics & Prose has declined to schedule any readings this weekend. Less is more, right? Especially when it comes to actual events that usually exist. No worries, there are still weekday goings-on relating to chimerical war criminal Donald Rumsfeld and a special celebrity appearance by a fella who says he works for Joe Biden.
- The titular "his" in this new book By His Own Rules is a pronoun that Donald Rumsfeld captured and tortured, for sport. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]
- Unscientific America boldly posits the hypothesis that scientific illiteracy threatens our future. Nerds are so hyperbolic! 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]
- Jared Bernstein is the Chief Economic Advisor to your Vice President, Joe Biden! The Center for American Progress has lured him to Busboys & Poets. 6 PM. [Busboys & Poets]
- History, that exists! This latest example is a "true crime" story about the 80s, a time when Chinese criminals had a run of things in America, apparently. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]
