George W. Bush will be attending a $2000/plate fundraiser today at noon at the Sheraton Hotel (301 E. North Water, across from the NBC Tower), and The Chicago Coalition Against War and Racism and several other groups plan to meet him there. Of course, they'll most likely be shunted off to a "free-speech zone" several blocks away. But it might be a good way to spend your lunch hour nonetheless.
