College in Lowell Tomorrow DickH says: June 15, 2010 at 5:18 am I already have my ticket and am looking forward to writing a complete report on this site after the event. I am a bit anxious, however. David McCullough had been my favorite author up until the night I heard him speak at the Lowell Auditorium as part of the MCC speaker series. During the Q&A that night, he was asked where history would rate George W Bush as president. McCullough replied that history would place George W Bush in the upper tier of American presidents. Ever since that night, I have not bought a single book or read a single word written by McCullough, nor do I have any interest in doing so. I really like Ken Burns and his work, so I’m hoping that history doesn’t repeat itself tomorrow night. Brian Flaherty says: June 15, 2010 at 1:27 pm Seriously Dick? I always pegged you as a rational guy, not a hyper partisian who cuts someone off because of what they think. Brian Flaherty says: June 15, 2010 at 1:27 pm BTW, I love Ken Burns and am also going tomorrow. But you don’t have to worry about him spewing right wing venom, he is as liberal as they come. ML says: June 15, 2010 at 10:45 pm Dick, you should ask Ken Burns what he thinks of Kyle Keady’s work.
