Phil Bronstein and Jose Antonio Vargas Have a Date at Commonwealth Club
|Vargas will answer to his ex-boss.|
Phil Bronstein, the Chron's executive editor, has been grappling with his own unwitting complicity in Vargas' high-profile career -- he had hired Vargas while he was a student at San Francisco State University. Bronstein wrote in a recent column that Vargas had met with him to tell him the truth before his story was printed in the Times.
Now the two will meet up again next Monday at the Commonwealth Club to hash it out publicly.
Bronstein will be playing the role of the host, with Vargas as his guest. But with Bronstein having referred to Vargas as a "hustler" and a "friend" in his column, we're guessing there will be more than just polite banter. We expect some hard-hitting back-and-forth that you won't want to miss.

But here is our question: Will immigration agents be in attendance, too?
