We discovered, through Twitter, a few weeks back that Anderson had agreed to speak at John Hopkins University, where Fouad Ajami is a professor. There were numerous tweets from students today saying that they had attended a private lecture with Cooper and Dr. Ajami. While Twitter isn't the most reliable of sources we thought we'd just pass on what we've heard. For those of you who aren't familiar Johns Hopkins University School of International Studies is located in Washington, DC and it counts among it's former students Wolf Blitzer.
While sorting through some old files this week I found two drawings of Anderson Cooper that I'm not sure we've ever posted. The first one is a charcoal that was done by John Paul.
This second one is a caricature that is signed but illegible (to us at least).
