Mark your calendars now, Wormtowners! Former Attorney General John Ashcroft is coming to town. He'll be speaking (and who knows, maybe singing) at the College of the Holy Cross's Hanify-Howland Lecture in the Hogan Ballroom at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16.
In honor of his appearance, somebody's going to throw a tarp over Turtle Boy. Also, all sales of pies, eggs and overripe tomatoes are banned in Worcester until further notice.
