IN DEFENSE OF AMERICA: FIGHTING A DIFFERENT KIND OF WAR, WITHOUT BECOMING A DIFFERENT KIND OF COUNTRY

President Bush says the U.S. is fighting a “different kind of war,” but does that mean it must become a different kind of country? Rather than justifying the usurpation of constitutional powers, this war demands that we stick to our core values more strongly than ever, says the ACLU. Romero shares examples from the legal war that he has been fighting at home. 5:30 p.m., Reception | 6:00 p.m., Program | Club office, 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco | Free for Members, $18 for Non-Members | Directions to The Club.Bookseller: Staceys Books
