Under the Dome

Bowles-Simpson show coming to Wake Forest U

At the height of election season, Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson are bringing their frank talk about the nation's multitrillion dollar debt to Wake Forest University.

They'll speak about solutions to the nation's deficit at Wait Chapel on Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Bowles, the former UNC president and White House chief of staff under Bill Clinton, and Simpson, the former Wyoming senator, co-chaired 2010's National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, a bipartisan group appointed by President Barack Obama. Bowles is a Democrat; Simpson is a Republican.

$50k each for Simpson & Bowles to speak at Wake?

How much do you think that Bowles & Simpson are getting from Wake to speak for free? My bet is over $50k each.  Bowles needs it (ha ha) since the value of his millions of shares of Facebook stock have crashed since they went public.  Nice job as a director, Erskine.
