It’s a bit late notice, but if you have some free time this evening, you’re going to want to head to Point Loma.

The San Diego Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is hosting the annual Report Card on the Media, wherein various newsmakers give their take on the way they were covered and treated by local reporters. It’s usually the best SPJ event of the year.

This year promises to be no different, and it may have political implications. City Attorney Mike Aguirre, whose interaction with the media recently has been fascinating and incendiary will be on the panel. I’m sure his advisors are telling him to let loose.

But in addition, there are some other great speakers confirmed. Kyla Ebbert will be speaking. She’s the woman profiled in that famous Gerry Braun column months ago detailing her experience being thrown off a Southwest Airlines flight for wearing a miniskirt. The column instantly pushed Ebbert into a roller coaster of celebrity.

Also, with a more serious experience, the judge who presided over the Catholic Diocese bankruptcy case, Judge Louise DeCarl Adler, will be presenting her thoughts.

And finally, Brisia Notario, the foster mother of a 19-month-old boy who was recently sent to Mexico to live with his grandfather after a well-publicized custody battle, will be speaking.

Again, these will all be interesting to hear. If I can get all my work done, I’ll be there too. Hope to see you. It will be at 6:30 at Point Loma Nazarene University in the Fermanian Business Center.
