Obama to Speak at ND

Holy crap! How did I miss that President Obama will be delivering the commencement address this year at Notre Dame? That’s fantastic! Of course, some of the more strict Catholics are predictably outraged. I find that… somewhat hypocritical. Why aren’t they launching petitions over ROTC’s large presence on campus? Why don’t they protest the number of non-Catholics (myself included) who attend and earn degrees? We should be HONORED that the President has chosen to come and speak. I can’t even imagine how the (very few) African-American students on campus are feeling.
