Last night I spoke at Washington University in St. Louis. The threatened disruptions did not happen, and the protests called for by the student paper did not happen either — in fact, the local MSA and its Leftist allies didn’t show up, which was a bit disappointing, as I would have been very happy to talk over matters with them and answer objections. The event was very sparsely attended, in part because the venue was changed at the last minute and with little notice, and non-students were barred, because of security concerns. There was no problem with security, however, as the ever-vigilant and formidable Kevin Tracy was on the job:
All in all it was a very pleasant evening, not least because of a delightful dinner after the talk with the knowledgeable and courageous students who brought me to the campus. Natalie of the superb Birdbrain blog was among them, and promises an account of the talk.
The Student Life paper has a slideshow and a few minutes of audio, and they say they’ll have more about the talk later this week. I’ll be looking forward to that!
