Discussion of San Diego Politics with an Expert

We just had our own discussion of San Diego’s political future with our own expert, John Mattes.  But, as I mentioned last night, this Saturday my book club is having another one, with USCSD professor Steve Erie, about his 2011 book, Paradise Plundered.  It’s a saddening tale of how San Diegans keep shooting themselves in the foot, local government-wise.

The meeting will be from 2pm to 3:30 on Saturday, July 13, at Monica’s In The Park, a coffee house on Park Boulevard.  See here for details and directions:  http://www.meetup.com/San-Diego-Liberal-Bookworms/

Also, since there’s no time for you all to read the book, here are some excerpts and reviews of the book.  FYI, this meeting is well-worth your time, especially since John will be there, too.

1.  OB Rag newspaper gives Paradise Plundered a stellar review:  http://obrag.org/?p=45531
