Tonight: James Howard Kunstler hits T-Town

James Howard KuntslerGot a note from Derek down at, Tacoma’s local community blog that leaves most of us Seattle bloggers to shame. (They write well and don’t spend their time in pissy political catfights with each other, which puts them light years ahead of some blog that dropped us from their Enemies List this week.)

They’re bringing in James Howard Kunstler to speak tonight down there. Kunstler is one of those doom-and-gloom sorts who writes about the world post-oil in The Long Emergency. He’d easily pack out Town Hall with our cadres of earnest Prius-driving liberals. Instead, though, they got him to come to Tacoma. If you’re in the south end, it’s worth your time to go hear this guy.

James Howard Kunstler
Tonight, 7:00pm, at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts’ Theatre on the Square (9th and Broadway). Tickets available from the Broadway Center website or box office.

    Went last night in the U District. Highly recommend it. He’l explain why the answer to the above post about food shortages is "yes we pretty much should panic."
