The AP has a story on the continuing flap over President Obama giving the commencement address at Notre Dame.
There are many people who think this story is overblown. Some bright academician should study how the fires of the culture wars are fanned by the media.
Anyway, I thought this was interesting.
The AP reports that: Notre Dame’s student newspaper, The Observer, has received 612 letters about Obama’s appearance – 313 from alumni and 299 from current students.
Seventy percent of the alumni letters opposed having Obama giving the speech, while 73 percent of student letters supported his appearance. Among the 95 seniors who wrote letters, 97 percent supported the president’s invitation.
