The F. W. Thomas Performances Returns
The F. W. Thomas Performances took a vacation during the summer but like a bad penny it’s turned up again, right there, under your shoe, stuck to the gum. Are you excited?
What’s the F.W. Thomas Performances? Damned if I know. I think it’s still finding its feet but as near as I can tell it’s a loopy lecture series that showcases local talent ruminating on offbeat or ironical topics. Who’s F. W. Thomas? A jack of all trades and, I think, master of none who still doesn’t have his own Wikipedia entry. But he’s got a lecture series which is more than I got.
I’m intrigued by two of the presenters participating in the next event on September 18th:
Reihan Salam, a writer living in Washington, D.C., explaining the hilariously lamentable phenomenon of the “Beta Male.”
Elspeth Reeve, a reporter at the New Republic, on her forbidden love for Ann Coulter.
I think you need to have DC Bachelor chime in to have a well-rounded conversation on the Beta Male, but let’s see how it goes.
