That’s right, step right up, who wants to be the next bidder for a wonderful night of intellectual debate and discussion on how to bring down the United States of America! For just $2500 you and five friends can dine finely with President Obama’s radical-revolutionary friends; Bill Ayers and his lovely wife Bernadine Dohrn!
Don’t have $2500 to seal the deal? No problem! The current bid on the PublicSquare.org‘s 10th Anniversary Auction is only $350!
Here’s what you get!
Enjoy an unforgettable and scintillating dinner for a party of six cooked by veteran activists and educators Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Fascinating conversation over a meal is the agenda for this special evening.
William Ayers, Distinguished Professor of Education and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Chicago (retired), has written extensively about social justice, democracy and education, the cultural contexts of schooling and teaching as an essentially intellectual, ethical, and political enterprise. He is currently the vice-president of the curriculum studies division of the American Educational Research Association.
The Public Square fosters debate, dialogue, and exchange of ideas about cultural, social, and political issues with an emphasis on social justice.
By building bridges between theory and practice, The Public Square encourages the use of ideas as tools to improve people’s lives. These programs promote participatory democracy and create space for public conversations. Knowledge is power, yet much crucial knowledge still circulates only in small, isolated communities.
**UPDATE** It gets better! We Illini actually subsidize the organization putting on this wonderful night of intellect with the domestic-terrorist duo!

Since 2007, the Council has been the beneficiary of $4,189,582, compliments of Illinois taxpayers. From the Comptroller’s website:
