Cokie Roberts, the great political reporter for NPR, has just been booked in to the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague, for a talk on Oct. 1, 8 p.m.
Spokane Public Radio is sponsoring her appearance. Roberts will talk about the issues roiling the other Washington, including healthcare, the debt, the economy and whatever new national crisis has reared its head by Oct. 1.
Roberts comes by her political acumen honestly. She's the daughter of two famous Congress members, her father Hale Boggs and her mother Lindy Boggs.
A lot of people, and I am one, rely on her for a level-headed view of what's happening in politics.
Tickets will be $40 (it's a Spokane Public Radio fundraiser), on sale Aug. 19 through Ticketswest.
