Yesterday, we were visited by the people with gigantic, disgusting, gory pictures having to do with abortion. Not only did the university(?) post signs on all walkways warning of disturbing photos ahead, but volunteers from the Women’s Center (I think) were out there with signs asking that students not engage the hate mongers, etc. Usually when these conflict-happy people visit, there’s shouting and it’s generally a terrible scene. Yesterday was quiet and peaceful; more people talked to the protesters than nutcases, & the rain washed it all away by noon. Well done, Oregon.
