Instead of simply screaming at your TV every time you flip by CSPAN or FOX News, why not join the political discussion? This month's lecture series at the National Constitution Center will allow you to vent your governmental frustrations, concerns and questions to fellow community members, as well as politicians, lawyers and other experts. At this week's installment, the focus is the upcoming Supreme Court. Attorney and former Solicitor General Paul D. Clement, Supreme Court vet reporter Lyle Denniston and president of the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund John Payton will examine the arrival of Judge Sonia Sotomayor and make legal predictions for 2010. Stefan Frank, director of national programs and initiatives for the center, stresses that the event is for people of all ages and backgrounds — not just those who subscribe to politico.com's RSS feed.
Mon., Sept. 28, 6:30 p.m., $7-$15 (reservation required), National Constitution Center, 525 Arch St., 215-409-6700, constitutioncenter.org.
