"Socialist" author set to speak... 

You know, you never see that on notices for campus events. But invite a conservative, and you get a tag.
Student groups are bringing conservative author Dinesh D'Souza to St. John's University.

D'Souza will speak and sign copies of his best seller "What's So Great About America" in an event sponsored by Students Fostering Conservative Thought, the College Republicans and the local chapter of Young America's Foundation.

D'Souza is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Pellegrene Auditorium at St. John's.

D'Souza has been shouted down and out of Columbia University in the past. I will be at the Medved event instead with most of NARN, but I hope some readers will visit D'Souza and report back on his talk. Here's his latest book.
