To do, Friday: Sen. Bill Bradley at UCLA

Thursday, April 12th, 2007


Hey everybody. Former NBA All-Star, U.S. Senator, presidential candidate AND honorary WT? co-chair Bill Bradley will be in Los Angeles Friday, and before he tapes an appearance on Bill Maher’s show he’ll be discussing and signing copies of his new book at 4PM at the UCLA Faculty Center. The book is called The New American Story and it’s Bradley’s plan for “mak[ing] America a better, stronger, truer country.” In the book Bradley calls for weekend voting. Here’s the New York Times review of the book. WT?‘s own Jake Soboroff will be there Friday, and he’s inviting you!


WT? on PBS: Thanks to Senator Bradley for talking about WhyTuesday.org last night on PBS. The Senator made his comments on Tavis Smiley.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
