Alas, I cannot attend this event, but for those who can, Bro. Halleran is a an informative and entertaining speaker. I had the privilege of hearing him talk about his book, "The Better Angels...," in New Castle, PA this past Spring. I also had the greater privilege of speaking with him about some of his research, conclusions, and theories of my own. Alas, I wish we were able to discuss the issues under more informal circumstances as I did not wish to monopolize his time there. Still, he was gracious to me and my views, and generous with his attention. If you have the opportunity to attend this event, do so.
