In Response to: The Hickel Heckle

Re: The Hickle Heckle. Yes, I recall it well. It’s relevant to add that when President Goheen welcomed our Class of 1970 to Princeton, he explained that we’d be too busy with our studies to get involved in any political activism. He gradually changed his mind. Where would be today without the activism that helped end the Vietnam War, and helped prevent Trump from being reelected in 2020 and further destroying our democracy?

If you’re wondering, I didn’t personally heckle Hickel, though the phrase itself is most inviting.
