Former US President Bill Clinton will come to UC Berkeley on Feb 24 in an event sponsored by the Blum Center for Developing Economies. The Daily Cal reports: "Preparations to have Clinton come to campus have been underway for several weeks with tickets expected to go on sale online Thursday at 7 a.m., according to campus spokesperson Janet Gilmore. A total of 2,000 tickets will be made available for the event which will be held at Zellerbach Hall, 1,200 of which will be made available to students for free."

Clinton will deliver a speech called "Global Citizenship: Turning Good Intentions into Positive Actions," which will be about zzzzz. Oh, we kid. Clinton is, if anything, a dynamic speaker. His visit and chat should prove interesting.
