Anita Hill Hailed as a Heroine 20 Years Later
When I was at Hunter College Saturday for “Sex, Power and Speaking Truth: Anita Hill 20 Years Later” I could tell that the event was going to turn into a great story for me. I didn’t get a one on one interview with Prof. Hill, but I did ask her a question during the Q and A period after her keynote address. She was very gracious and we engaged in a nice exchange. I got a lot of applause and kudos from the audience, which felt wonderful. Another whirlwind day, I didn’t sit down for an actual meal until I got to a homecoming dinner for Pace University, later that night.
Frankly, it had been a whirlwind two-week period. I was scheduled to go to MI October 6th. I ended up taking an impromptu trip to Las Vegas for the first three days of the week. I had a great time! I was staying in the Tower Suites at The Wynn. As far as I’m concerned Steve Wynn’s hotels in Vegas are two of the nicest in the world. (And you know I have stayed in many hotels on several continents) So imagine my excitement when I saw Mr. Wynn in the flesh one night at dinner! I was also seated right next to Wayne Newton at lunch one day. It was a great trip. My only complaint was that it was too short.
