Noted Congressional Scholar to give weekend talk

Norman Ornstein, co-author of the New York Time’s bestseller It’s Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism, will speak this Sunday, March 17, at the Claremont United Church of Christ, 233 W. Harrison Ave. The event begins at 7 p.m.

In his best seller, Mr. Ornstein and congressional scholar Thomas Mann argue that 2 overriding problems have led Congress and the United States to the brink of institutional collapse. Mr. Ornstein offers solutions to the problem.
Mr. Ornstein’s lecture is the fourth in the “Agenda for a Prophetic Faith” lecture series, a program of Progressive Christians Uniting (PCU) centered on social action. 

Tickets for the lecture are $10. Low income and scholarship tickets are available. For more information, contact John Forney at or Vern Visick at For more on the series, visit
