If you’re in the DC area this week, catch George Weigel’s William E. Simon Lecture “Scoundrel Time: The Politics of 2008” on Wednesday, February 4 at the Madison Hotel (1177 Fifteenth Street NW). The lecture starts at 6:30 PM and the reception at 7:30. R.S.V.P. to 202.715.3512 or e-mail EPPC .

And in case you’re wondering about the topic of the lecture: “An engaging, challenging, and occasionally even amusing exploration of how the Sixties were the big winner in the 2008 presidential election, with a few further notes on the dangers of messianic politics and the temptations of faux populism. The 2008 William E. Simon Lecture—a bracing contrast to the general swoon of recent weeks.”
