Sept 27: Ted Rall at Busboys and Poets

This PR just arrived -
Renowned political cartoonist and graphic novelist TED RALL will will be appearing at Busboys & Poets on 14th St, NW at 6:30PM on September 27.
A little about Ted:
Twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and a Pulitzer Prize finalist, TED RALL is a political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist and occasional war correspondent whose work has appeared in hundreds of publications, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Village Voice, and Los Angeles Times. Due out is his new book, The Anti-American Manifesto, in October. The book is a new manifesto for an America heading toward economic and political collapse. While others mourn the damage to the postmodern American capitalist system created by the recent global economic collapse, Rall sees an opportunity. As millions of people lose their jobs and their homes, they and millions more are opening their minds to the possibility of creating a radically different form of government and economic infrastructure.
- I'm a big fan of Ted's work, and glad that my Kickstarter donation to send him back to Afghanistan didn't get him killed, so I'll probably be attending this.
