School greets Bush visit with dialogue, not vitriol

St. Vincent College is roiling over President Bushs planned visit on Friday, but the protests have little resemblance to the tumultuous demonstrations that swept across college campuses during the Vietnam War. In fact, the rest of the country might learn a lesson from the small Catholic school near Pittsburgh. Instead of shouting at each other across a partisan divide, the 1,600 students and their professors have been having a spirited but civil debate about Iraq and the symbolic overtones of Bushs commencement address.
