This sounded good to me���i hope some of you might feel the same:
(and it's free!!)

Kehilla Hosts Todd GitlinJournalist & Commentator 

Tuesday, November 30, 7:30pm. Free event.

Todd Gitlin, nationally known commentator and journalist, will read from his latest book, Chosen Peoples: America, Israel, and the Ordeals of Divine Election, co-authored with Liel Leibovitz.  This book has engendered controversy from its analysis that both Israel and the U.S. have abused their parallel spiritual perspectives as being divinely elected in some manner.  In his talk, he will address the question: if the U.S and Israel are ���chosen,��� then what are they chosen for?

Todd Gitlin first became known in the 1960���s when he was president of Students for A Democratic Society. He helped organize the first national demonstration against the Vietnam War and the first American demonstrations against corporate aid to the apartheid regime in South Africa.  Over the decades, as a sociologist and journalist, he has remained a controversial commentator and critic of developments in American society, at times turning his critical eye towards developments in the American Left, as well.  He lectures frequently on culture and politics in the United States and abroad.  He has appeared on many National Public Radio programs including Fresh Air as well as PBS, ABC, CBS and CNN.

Mr. Gitlin is now a professor of journalism and sociology and chair of the Ph. D. program in Communications at Columbia University. He lives in New York City with his wife, Laurel Cook.

The event is free.

Subject: [Progressive-Singles-SF-Bay-Area] Any good ideas for MeetUps?

Hi Everyone,
I'm looking for some ideas for MeetUps.  If you know of interesting events, let me know.  or, we could have a social event, e.g. potluck, hike, or such. there seem to be fewer lecture-type events now because of the holidays probably.  and there will be competition with holiday parties, but we can always join one or hold one!  We could also have a gathering in someone's house, maybe with a movie.  anyone interested in comedy, theatre, improv, bicycling, touring SF on double -decker bus, volunteering at a food bank, just meeting to talk about politics or dating or???
(sorry my punctuation/capitalization has deteriorated - I love my new Ipad  but it encourages slackness in that regard)
Thanks for all your enthusiasm and various ideas, keep them coming -
