The UEL had a really great meeting last night. Max Rameau was cutting edge interesting, and a whole new group of students showed up and participated in the taping of the program. About 50 people attended. The room was energy charged! Before the program someone sent me an article on Max printed in the Virginia Quarterly Review. It was spot on in capturing Miami politics and illustrating Max's role as a change agent. It's hard not to agree with his basic premise that "Housing is a Human Right." If you're curious, try this link. We have also established a new policy for students who would like to join us for the dinner portion of the program: a discount of $5.00 on the meal, OR A TOTAL PRICE OF $20. A very good deal. I heard many positive comments about the food last night as well. It was surprising to me since I have thought that the Rusty Pelican food has been good for a very long time, but apparently some "old timers" hadn't visited the place since years earlier when they had formed a different impression. More than once I heard these folks mention that they were "surprised and delighted" with the fare. We've got some good programs coming up. Hope more of you will be able to join us. Fran
