Events: Duncan DREAMs of the Aspen Ideas Festival

image from latinopoliticsblog.com On Monday, Duncan, Chicago Mayoral Rahm Emanuel and others will appear at West Point to talk about the DREAM Act.  One of the two will reveal that he is actually an undocumented alien (no, not really).  

More DREAM on Tuesday, then appearances Thursday and Friday at the Aspen Ideas Festival related to every reformers' favorite new book, Class Warfare and videogaming, too.  

Anyone going to be at the AIF this year and want to cover it? Let me know.  Image via
