Through May 31 – Online
Buy a talk by David to benefit public radio
station KPCC at their Spring Online Auction.
This is David’s third year as an item: in 2015 he cost $100; in 2016, $220 –
an increase of 80 times the rate of inflation! (Or something like that, I was
told there’d be no math.) Buy now, you won’t be able to afford him in 2018.
June 10 – Burbank
In 1970, a group of college students take over the Dean’s office to protest
