Two opportunities to take advantage of offerings in the Washington area next week:

Stolen Seas

Have you ever wondered how a few guys in a motorboat can capture a huge ship, hold the crew and ship hostage, and then escape with millions of dollars?

Well I have.

And I hope to find out how that can happen and what the Somali piracy is all about.

Join me Wed., Jan. 30th at 7 PM at the West End Cinema for the screening of a new documentary that was three or four years in the making and apparently involves all the ‘players’ and what this piracy is about, how it works, who benefits, etc. (See this plot summary for further details of the film.)

I have one ticket available for someone to join Ellen and myself. There will be a panel discussion following the film.


Al Gore

I mentioned this evening previously but so far have had no takers.

Former VP and Nobel Peace Prize winner has a new book being published next week, entitled The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change. As I understand it, The Future is broader than VP Gore’s writing on environmental issues. It is about what he sees as the forces that are changing our world.

Join me Thursday, Jan. 31, 7 PM at Sixth & I St for this sold out event.


Let me know by email (Samesty84@gmail.com) if you are interested in either of these evenings.
