The Left Forum (formerly the Socialist Scholars Conference) opens tonight continuing through the weekend. As usual there will be too many panels to choose from, but at least there'll be something for everyone. Chomsky will speak on Saturday. Occupy will have a presence, including Alt Bank (Occupy's group of economy wonk-activists focused on the financial system), in case anyone's interested in what I've been doing with my Sundays.
Program guide and conference schedule -- at Pace, across from City Hall Park just south of the bridge.
