Today there was a protest in front of the main entrance to campus. Fortunately, it was only a small crowd holding up pictures of dead fetuses. Really made me angry - none of the protesters were ND students, this issue has been hijacked by radicals. Really a shame for the graduating seniors.
It came up today in class, I told the seniors to quit signing petitions on Facebook and get their butts out there for a counter protest. Show that the majority of folks at the University are quite excited by the prospect of President Obama's visit.
After class I headed over to do just that, but I guess they punch a time clock, 'cuz no one was there. Good. This whole boondoggle is embarrassing. Recently we made the NY Times:
