Two things of interest this week, one today (Monday) and one Wednesday:
1. I know this is very last minute, but [I'm on] the College Dems
Executive Board, and we're having a discussion about alternative energy in
the Orange and Brew on Monday at 7PM. If you know anyone interested in
joining us, please let me know. It's different from the normal presentation
format, and we've had some pretty interesting debates. Rob Brinkman might be
joining us as well.
