    I saw Chris Hedges at the University of Toronto. Simply outstanding content and delivery. The audience was gob-smacked, to say the least.

    Highly recommended.

    You should try your best to attend.

    Sonali Kolhatkar said that the questions from this night’s speech would be posted online on kpfk.org with his responses.

    Anyone know what’s going on with that?

    Will his talk be available online as well? Please post where it can be seen so my friends who could not make it inside (it was packed and scores of people were turned away at the door) can see/hear it.
