Some Aggies got upset with our interpretation of President George H.W. Bush's open letter to them saying "Chill out, brosephs, when Obama comes to town."
Now the President is in town, and how are they doing?
You can follow along at The Battalion, the campus paper, which is offering all kinds of live coverage of the event, which is designed to promote volunteerism (and Marxism, we have to assume.)
The paper reports 600 protesters have shown up at Spence Park in College Station, and another 250 on campus.
