I am excited to report that I have been asked to deliver the Willard Kniep annual lecture in history at Pacific University, which is near Portland, OR. I will be speaking on "The Rage Against Taxes in Modern American Conservatism." If any readers of eight hundred words live in the area, I would love to see you there. The talk will be at 4:15 on Monday, September 21 in Marsh Hall Taylor Auditorium on the campus in Forest Grove, OR. Admission is free and open to the public. Further information is here.
