Who's going to see Madeleine Albright?
That's right. This kid. Many thanks to IU's Twitter account for helping me discover that tickets were just made available yesterday. After work I sprinted over to the Auditorium to pick up as many as they would let me have -- which was 4 by the way -- so my friends and I could hear her lecture in November. I find her so fascinating. Born in the Czech Republic. Wellesley grad. A Ph.D. from Columbia. First female Secretary of State. Highest ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government. And...wait for it...she once made a cameo appearance on Gilmore Girls. Rory had a dream that Madeleine Albright was her mother. Strong work. It. is. awesome. Watch it for yourself.
