Bush at Calvin Roundup

Unsurprisingly, Bush’s scheduled appearance at Calvin has generated considerable discussion within and without the college, online and offline.

The most prominent mention was in the Washington Post which initially ran this article, which predictably characterised Calvin as a hotbed of conservatism. Kate and others responded to the article, and the result made for more pleasant reading. It was also picked up by Kos, leading to some hundreds of comments.

A group of students whose graduation is being compromised by the decision have launched a google group to discuss ways to respond. You can find that good discussion here. And Rob Vander Giessen-Reitsma has written a great open letter, which is to be found here.

  1. What did you think of Jim Wallis’ talk? He’s given me good reasons to re-examine my own thinking about goals and strategies, particularly in the earlier session.
