Commencement Anxieties

After all the worrying about what, if anything, might disrupt our Commencement here at UM - and did we say that at the Law School ceremony, 60-70% of the faculty present were sporting "Support the Students" buttons? - we thought people might be interested in other Commencement-related student activism.

There's Jean Rohe at the New School in NYC laying into John McCain's pro-war stance.

At Boston College, protests greeted Commencement speaker Condoleeza Rice. One professor, Steve Almond, quit in protest.
