Opening Session Debate

Carlson vs. Carlson

Sunday, August 4, 2002

Anaheim Marriott Hotel, Ballroom 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Carlson vs. Carlson, a political debate featuring Margaret Carlson, columnist for TIME magazine, and Tucker Carlson, political analyst and renowned journalist, promises to be a highly informative and entertaining event during the Opening Session of the American Correctional Association's 132nd Congress of Correction.

Margaret Carlson was named a columnist for TIME magazine in February 1994. Her column, "Public Eye," made her the first woman columnist in the magazine's 78-year history. In addition to her duties at the magazine, she serves as a panelist on CNN's political programs, Inside Politics and The Capitol Gang. Ms. Carlson joined TIME in January 1988 from the New Republic, where she was managing editor. Her journalism career has included stints as Washington bureau chief for Esquire magazine, editor of Washington Weekly, and editor of the Legal Times of Washington.

In addition to covering Campaign 2000 extensively, spending time with both Al Gore and George W. Bush, Ms. Carlson has covered the last three presidential elections. In her column she has regularly commented on cultural and political issues, including the campaign finance scandals, the state of feminism, and education issues. She recently received a National Headliner Award far columns she wrote in 2000.

Tucker Carlson has also become one of the nation's leading experts on politics. With his fresh perspective and extensive knowledge of key political figures, Mr. Carlson serves as co-host of Crossfire, CNN's popular and lively political debate program. Mr. Carlson and co-host Robert Novack provide insight and commentary from a conservative point of view as they square off against co-hosts James Carville and Paul Begala "from the left."

Like his worthy opponent, Mr. Carlson has also provided analysis as a panelist for Inside Politics. In 1998, he joined the media roundtable on CNN's Sunday talk show Late Edition with Waif Blitzer. Most recently, Mr. Carlson was co-host of CNN's The Spin Room with Bill Press. He has also covered the White House, Congress and dozens of political campaigns.

A renowned journalist as well as a political analyst, Mr. Carlson writes the "National Affairs" column for New York Magazine and is a contributing editor for The Weekly Standard.

Anaheim Convention Center Ballroom

Don Shula, professional football coach of the National Football League (NFL) and most dominant figure since the late Vince Lombardi, will be the Keynote Speaker at the American Correctional Association's 132nd Congress of Correction.

Mr. Shula's record as head coach of the Baltimore Colts from 1963 to 1969 and the Miami Dolphins from 1970 to 1995 is unmatched in NFL history. In 1995, he concluded his 33rd season as the winningest NFL head coach ever with a career mark of 347 wins, 173 losses, and 6 ties for a 67 percent winning average. Of all NFL coaches, only Shula and the immortal George Halos attained 300 victories.

On July 26, 1997, Mr. Shula capped an illustrious career when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, following his election into that shrine on January 25, 1997, his first year of eligibility.

Because of his success on the football field and his longtime civic and charitable service, Mr. Shula has received countless prestigious awards recognizing his contributions, including, most recently, the 1993 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Award, the 1994 Horatio Alger Award, the Bert Bell Award and the Pete Rozelle Award, In addition, along with Ken Blanchard, Mr. Shula co-authored "Everyone's A Coach," a highly acclaimed book that outlines the application of their managerial philosophies for business and personal success.
