Pretty good run of speaker at Brown in the coming days. Today at 4 pm, sociologist Charles Murray - he of the controversial Bell Curve and the fascinating Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010 - speaks at MacMillan Hall. Hoping to get there myself.
Then, on Monday at noon at the Watson Institute, you've got Stewart Baker, former assistant secretary for policy with the Department of Homeland Security delivering a lecture titled, "Cyberwar: Overhyped or Over Here."
And on Tuesday at noon at the Taubman Center on George Street, Adam Liptak of the New York Times will deliver a lecture titled, "The Roberts Court in the Obama Era: A Reporter's Reflections."
