George Lakoff in Seattle, June 17: Pre-sale tickets available now

My employer, ONE/Northwest, is among the many fine organizations co-sponsoring George Lakoff's June 17th appearance at Town Hall in Seattle.

Lakoff is a professor of linguistics at Berkeley and is enjoying a certain flavor-of-the-month status among progressives for his analysis of the ways conservatives use language to "frame" their political arguments and how progresives often fail to do this effectively.

While it's true that some have fallen into the trap of Lakoff-as-guru, I'm certain it will be worthwhile to go hear what he has to say in person.

Get your tickets now before Town Hall starts up its publicity machine.

Bonus: if you've read Lakoff, what did you think?  Is he on target or missing something important?
