Outspoken anti-war veteran Tomas Young
recently made headlines by publishing an open letter
addressed to George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, in which he announced his intention to end his life and condemned the former president and vice president for their actions in the Iraq War. Young is a Kansas City native, and on Sunday, May 19, the Alamo Drafthouse Mainstreet is hosting "A Tribute to Tomas Young." Another outspoken anti-war figure, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, will be in town to perform at the event.
Phil Donahue - who co-directed Body of War, a 2007 documentary about Young that will screen at the event - will also be on hand. More info on the event can be found here.
