A prayer at Night time

This comes from the gang at Leviathan - would love to get to one of their seminars - they are providing an arena for some very worthwhile conversations. See info below:

Leviathan - Political Cabaret
Established in December 2003 by Naoise Nunn, Leviathan is a unique live forum for provocative and entertaining discussion of political, social and cultural issues fused with satirical music, cartoons and comedy. Leviathan has featured senior politicians and business leaders as well as leading musicians, writers, poets and comics in conversation on issues profound and ridiculous, always with contributions from the audience. In 2006 and 2007, Leviathan ran two hugely popular, successful and critically-acclaimed venues collectively called the Leviathan Think Tank at the Electric Picnic festival which featured debates as well as spoken word.

UPDATE - I see that Naoise Nunn is also an executive director of Libertas -Missed that one! That would make me rather uncomfortable as Libertas is an organisation that I have a lot of disquiet about. I still think the Leviathan model is a good one but must do more research! Thanks Bock.

FURTHER UPDATE - I hear this morning that Naoise Nunn & Libertas parted some time ago and that he is now advocating a YES vote on Lisbon - Always refreshing to find someone not afraid to change their mind and not to spin the change as if it isn't really change.

Naoise Nunn.

Would that be the executive director of Libertas?

Oops! :-( Hadn't realised the link - Libertas is definitely not my cup of tea! Must do some research!

I suppose moving from one comedy show to another isn't such a huge step.

I believe that 'Laviathan' is also the name of one of the demons invoked by the church of satan (Mr. Levay's crew). The demon of the north as far as I remember.
The Libertas thing might be scarier though.
