Next week, former US Attorney General John Ashcroft is speaking here at Columbia. Ashcroft — the guest of the Columbia Federalist Society, College Conservative Club, College Republicans and Young Americans Foundation — is delivering a speech entitled, "Law, Liberty and Security."
Naturally, questions at the event will be pre-screened, so send yours in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In case you can't pony up $275 for the student rate(!) to join Ashcroft for dinner before the speech*, here's an Ashcroft gem likely to eclipse any witty over-tenderloin banter you might hear from the former Attorney General:
John Ashcroft sings his blockbuster hit Let the Eagle Soar

Let the eagle soar,
Like she's never soared before.
From rocky coast to golden shore,
Let the mighty eagle soar.
Soar with healing in her wings,
As the land beneath her sings:
"Only god, no other kings."
This country's far too young to die.
We've still got a lot of climbing to do,
And we can make it if we try.
Built by toils and struggles
God has led us through.
* Update: As noted in a comment below and here, the $275 student rate (again, !) applies only to dinner with the former Attorney General. The entry fee and/or attendee qualifications for the speech are not specified in the Federalist Society email.
