Sheeesh. CPAN has gone to pot. They don't have it on their schedule. If your interested in the "Resignation Speech of Speaker Wright" whoever that is, your in luck.</saracasm>

I just saw part of it at the bottom of the hour news on Fox. You heard teddie talking, saw Daddy Bush responding (but not what he said - just teddie walking off and coming back).

I'm not sure that GHW Bush is the one who selected the recipient of the award. From the link at the top of the thread, to the GHWB foundation, it appears that the board of directors may be the ones who do the selecting.

Whatever the case, it appears that GHWB gave Teddy a good FReeping onstage, before he presented the award. GHWB held his own protest, it seems.

I hope everyone who went out for the FReep today had a fun time, and that a report and photos will be forthcoming.

Is EMK still married to the Louisiana native Vicki Reggie Kennedy? Her father was a power broker for Edwin Washington Edwards.

About 50 people, including a man dressed up to look like the senator, staged a protest of his campus appearance. It was organized by the A&M chapter of the Young Conservatives of Texas.

"Mr. Bush, who personally selected the senator for the award..." (source: Dallas Morning News article linked above by DrewsDad)

I stand corrected. And disappointed in GHW Bush's judgement.

I was actually very upset that my university would be involved in honoring the likes of Ted Kennedy so I called the University about this a couple of weeks ago and was referred to the Bush Foundation, where I spoke to another fellow Aggie. He told me that GHWB had personally selected Teddy boy prior to TK's most ascerbic remarks about W, and that GHWB decided to go ahead with the award after the remarks. While I wouldn't have gone ahead and honored the schmuck, I feel I have to respect (but not agree with) GHWB's decision.

After last Saturday's performance in Norman (Oklahoma 73, Aggies 0), it seems to me that the protests should be redirected at the head football coach and the athletic director!

The score was 77-0, and if you want to lead the way, sports.tamu.edu has all the email addresses and phone numbers you can handle today.
