St. Louis University Wants More Than Russert

From their student newspaper’s editorial:

    Let’s not ‘Meet the Press:’ demanding more than Russert for commencement

    The choice of Tim Russert as Commencement speaker represents another selection in a disappointing trend that appears to be emerging. For the past four years, seniors have been treated to uninspiring politicians or uninspiring pundits as their speaker at graduation. Moreover, the decision on who should be the commencement speaker has been made without consulting the senior class. In the future, this certainly needs to change.
