Finding a port in a political storm

Our fine president visited my alma mater today, Kansas State University, because it is one of the most boring and conservative places on Earth. Now, I still remember Kansas State fondly...but I would never live in Manhattan again.

Every time I go back there I am struck by the veritable sea of crewcuts. Between the soldiers, the frat boys, and the farm boys it's hard to find any male with hair down to his collar or an open mind.

Not impossible...but not easy.

Of course, that's why Dubya likes it.

NPR's Morning Edition finds some parallels between Dubya's visit today and Tricky Dick's visit in the 1970's.
