How about a summary of news I haven’t had time to mention this week, just to catch up on items of interest? I’ll let the political cartoons do most of the talking. Did you catch the problem at Rutgers where there were so many protests from faculty and students about Condoleeza Rice speaking at graduation that she withdrew from the event?

Hope this little roundup of the news you might have missed was worthwhile. That was the week that was.
