With our background at Stanford--veterans of many a battle regarding the 
infamous Hoover Institute, this story thrills Bruce and me!  It was one of 
the first stories I read in The New York Times this morning.  I could not 
find it in the San Francisco Chronicle but I did find it (below) in the San 
Jose Mercury News.  I can just picture the scene.  Wonderful news!

Protesters force Bush to move Stanford meeting

Mercury News

President Bush's visit to Stanford University's Hoover Institution was 
quickly moved to another location after more than 1,000 protesters converged 
around the Hoover tower.

The White House said the protesters blocked the only road into the central 
areaof the campus where Hoover is located, which forced a meeting with 
several Hoover fellows to be moved to the campus home of former Secretary of 
State George Shultz, a Hoover fellow who organized the gathering.

The motorcade instead traveled to the house, which is on the outer edge of 

The change in plans delayed the president's arrival by about 15 minutes.

Protesters said they were disappointed that the President would not see them 
and accused the President of sneaking around to avoid them.
