On Monday night the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington hosted the Ploughshares Fund Gala. Ploughshares Fund is a bi-partisan group aiming to put an end to the remnants of the nuclear proliferation age, and finally making the world a nuclear-free place for future generations. The gala featured prominent figures, such as Sec. of State John F. Kerry, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, former Sen. Richard Lugar, among other V.I.P.’s.

The Master of Ceremonies for the night was Emmy and Academy award winning actor Michael Douglas, who’s passion for complete global nuclear disarmament has put him in the same league as some of the most powerful people in the world who are not actor (beat that, Clooney).

Warren Bass To Outlook

From the Post’s internal announcement:

    Warren Bass will be joining the Outlook section as the deputy editor after two years as the nonfiction editor at Book World.

    Warren will bring sophistication, crack editing chops and a voluminous rolodex to Outlook starting sometime later next month.
    A member of the board of advisers of Foreign Affairs magazine, Warren served on the staff of the 9/11 Commission, has a PhD in history from Columbia University and is the author of a book about JFK’s Middle East policies. Given his former codeword security clearance, Warren is more likely than most to be the first to hear where Osama bin Laden has been hiding.

    With Warren, we are looking forward to creating a section filled with the supremely relevant and decidedly irreverent, a section that spans continents and states and gets us beyond the Beltway — at least once a week. We are looking forward to having him!
