Ed Meese Enthralls USD Guests for the
Joan E. Bowes-James Madison Distinguished Speaker Series
You could hear a pin drop as Edwin Meese III spoke November 27th, 2007 for the Joan E. Bowes-James Madison Series at the University of San Diego's Peace and Justice Theatre. Guests enjoyed pearls of wisdom and insight regarding as Mr. Meese regarding the evening's topic, 'The Constitution in Peace and War.' As the 75th Attorney General serving under Ronald Reagan, Mr. Meese was quite informative with a friendly twist. Ed remarked that when you are working within the politico top in D.C., you are part of the 'who's who.' Once you are out, you become part of the 'who cares.'
Well not in this case. Ed Meese had listeners riveted.
Iraq and other big issues were discussed as part of the continum of how history and politics follow patterns.
This prestigious evening was possible due to the generosity of Joan E. Bowes. Joan sponsors appropriately and patriotically the Joan E. Bowes-James Madison Distinguished Speakers Series at USD.
Among the guests for the evening were Patty and Cooprider, Larry Davis, Betty Dow, Cristull and Victor Hasson, Scott Johnston, Cindy Goodman, Monique Grey, Rick Wildman, and Kevin Cole, the Dean and Professor at Law for the University of San Diego.
Joan E. Bowes established the speaker series "to inspire law students and other members of the San Diego community and to promote the open exchange of ideas. Bearing the name of James Madison -- Fourth President of the United Sates and 'Father of the Constitution ' -- this annual series brings distinguished speakers from the fields of law, diplomacy, government and politics to the University of Sam Diego."
Joan E. Bowes had this to say about the evening. "It really was a very successful event. And I truly felt honored to be able to have Attorney General Edwin Meese to be the fourth speaker for the Joan E. Bowes - James Madison Distinguished Speaker Series."
