Donahue at Screening in School Auditorium Nov. 7

Do you remember Phil Donahue?  He hosted a TV talk show (one of the first) for 26 years.  He's now an anti-war activist and he'll be giving a lecture on Thursday, November 7 at 7:00pm at Worthington Hooker School Auditorium.  It's a screening of the documentary, "Body of War." The music in the film is by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.  After the screening, Donahue will do some Q&A about it.  A summary of the film from Wikipedia:
Shocked by the September 11 attacks Thomas Young wants to defend his country and subsequently he joins the United States Armed Forces. As a soldier he is sent to Iraq and soon after his arrival a marksman's bullet maims him. Intercut with his personal story is footage from Congressional proceedings in Washington, D.C. which led to this disputed war.

Free admission.  This event is sponsored by
