Jane Meyer speaks tonight on the subject of “Ideals, Intelligence, and the Law” for the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, tonight at 6:30 at the Chicago Club. It’s a bit pricey for a lecture at $30, but she is one of the best reporters in the country, whose groundbreaking New Yorker reportage on torture and intelligence issues will go down as some of the best of the new century. The Dark Side is a masterpiece, the best book I read last year. If you miss it, you can listen to her talk about the book with Amy Goodman here.
