The World Leaders Forum Just Got Good

Written by

With no disrespect to Slovenia or Iceland, Bwog was a little worried that the World Leaders Forum had lost its panache after last year’s… excitement. But never fear! A handful of e-mails just informed us that Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister of Turkey, and Evo Morales, President of Bolivia, who spoke at the WLF in 2006, have been scheduled to speak next week, in the Casa Italiana and Low Rotunda respectively.

Erdogan, we learn, is also being sponsored by the ridiculously well-connected Institute for Religion Culture and Public Life, and is already full to capacity. Registration for Morales starts tomorrow at 9 a.m. You can find out more here or in the blurbs after the jump. Happy WLF-ing!

  1. BWOG!!!  

    You should make a post about the latest assault/attempted robbery alert from public safety. some kid was attacked at 123 and Amsterdam

  2. BREAKING NEWS

    Evo Morales is a moron.

  3. Anonymous  

    Some people would consider the juxtaposition of Erdogan's photo with Ataturk's to be offensive, since Erdogan is basically trying to systematically undo all the good Ataturk did for the country.

  4. Then again,

    Some people would find Ataturk's picture offensive.
