    I also was at the 1 pm Commencement. There were a number of boos, which escalated in volume and number toward the end of Stephens’s speech. While he might have finished, his words were hurried and not “eloquently” delivered as the boos became louder. He appeared to be a bit rattled and anxious to take his seat. Applause was moderate and simply polite as the booing took over. As a parent of one of the graduates, I know it doesn’t take a Conservative or a Liberal to be disappointed by Mr. Stephens’s use of a university commencement to voice his own political views. He was out of line in many ways...
