G-L-O-R-I-A, Gloooria!

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem was prophetic Jan. 8 when she opined, in the New York Times, that "Senators Clinton and Obama have to be careful not to let a healthy debate turn into the kind of hostility that the news media love."

Much to the delight of CNN and the Daily Show, Clinton and Obama have been slugging it out ever since.

Wellesley College, Clinton's alma mater, is not saying whether Steinem will make any more bold predictions when she appears on campus to speak next Wednesday, Feb. 6, but they are reasonable sure she'll take questions. Steinem is appearing at the invitation of the Students for Reproductive Rights group, according to college spokesperson Molly Taratino.

The public is welcome to attend. Tickets are $20 and can be reserved by e-mail. The lecture begins at 7:30 p.m. in Tishman Commons in the Lulu Chow Wang Campus Center.
