20th Anniversary of The Velvet Revolution


I am looking forward to this year’s celebration. It will start Saturday and continue through Tuesday for most, lots of employers are giving people Monday off.

With events taking place between the 14th and the 17th, at least one will include remote greetings from President Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, the Dalai Lama and Mikhail Gorbachev.

Saturday’s concert looks like Suzanne Vega, Joan Baez, Renée Fleming and Lou Reed will be playing without Mick Jagger.

Also on Saturday will be a series of debate/discussion organized by Charles University with such figures as Madeleine Albright, Tom Stoppard, Adam Michnik and Bob Geldof in attendance. I have an invite to this one, so here’s hoping I see you there.
