and others. Said Alex Zaffron, "people in the Music and Arts communities have been expressing great alarm at the direction this administration has taken our country--mindless militarism, combined with hostility to freedom of expression have led many to wonder how they can contibute to the campaign for change. So Dave and I thought that bringing voters and performers together in this show would be an ideal w ay to help in the effort to bring change this November". For more Info, contact David Chung at 942-9242, or Alex Zaffron at 360-8048.

Imagine my suprise when about 135 minutes into The Corporation, who should turn up on the screen at a speech but our own former Chapel Hill Town Council Member Pat Evans! Pat was among hundreds attending a speech on corporate responsibility at NCSU by Ray Anderson (CEO of the world's largest carpet manufacturer). Ray describes himself as a "plunderer" for taking resources from the earth and giving back nothing but pollution. His company, Interface Inc., has now pledged to become completely sutainable by 2020.

I wonder how Pat enjoyed the speech? Was her husband (former dean of the UNC business school) there?

No s..t!

As an aside, some interesting people-watching as all the local big whoozits schmooze here at the Artscenter for Ken Broun's birthday--Chilton included.
(I'm here working for a living).

Cheers, Alex
