Thanks for watching the video by Dr. Michael Parenti. I am personally acquainted with Dr. Parenti and he is VERY interested in coming to speak in the Tulsa/Bartlesville areas this year. Let me know what I can do to make that happen. I know what it costs to get him here and can be very helpful with promotion and publicity for events. I feel passionate about peace and about Dr. Parenti's work. Peace to you, Tony, Jill
