Talk in L.A., at the Reason Offices, on Slippery Slopes:

I'll be talking on the mechanisms of the slippery slope Thursday, March 15, from 12:05 pm to 1:05 pm at Reason's offices in L.A., 3415 S. Sepulveda Blvd. Suite 400, just north of the corner of Sepulveda and Palms. It's a brown-bag lunch, but apparently you can order a lunch by e-mailing mary.toledo at or calling her at 310-391-2245.
