All the news that no one prints


"Although President George W. Bush was scheduled to meet with fellows at the Hoover Institution on Friday, the presence of more than 1,000 protestors forced him to change his plans and meet with advisers and faculty members at the residence of former Secretary of State and Hoover Fellow George Shultz on the outskirts of the Stanford campus.

"More than 100 armed law enforcement and Secret Service officers lined the streets outside of Encina Commons, as students, parents, faculty members and local residents protested Bush’s anticipated arrival on east campus. While the protest was peaceful, three Stanford students — seniors Claire Wagenseil, Diogo Pereira and Caroline Martin — were arrested as police pushed the crowd out of Serra Street."

The first I heard of this was in a recent Paul Craig Roberts column. Now, why is that, you suppose?
