That legendary Texan, Dan Rather, will bring his considerable personality to The Q&A Cafe on Friday, November 7. This will happen in the immediate aftermath of the midterm elections and he'll help us reflect on the results and what they mean for the lameduck years of the Obama presidency and the 2016 elections.
Another topic to explore is the recent news that Robert Redford will portray Dan in a film about Rathergate, a film in which Cate Blanchett will co-star. Dan is a busy journalist and broadcaster. Check out the Dan Rather website to learn more.
Oh, and Texas. I do want to talk about Texas.
Rather joins a Q&A Cafe fall line-up that already includes MPD Chief Cathy Lanier (Friday Sept 12) the Rev. Stuart Kenworthy (Friday, Oct 3) who is retiring the pulpit at Christ Episcopal Church, political and economic analyst Gregory Valliere (the midterms and our money on Friday Oct 17) ... and others still to be announced. While I know Dan will be a hugely popular draw, all Q&A Cafe shows are interesting, even fun, and the audience members enjoy the camaraderie.
