Simmon's commencement speaker was Bianca Jagger.
The horror of being held hostage and subjected to a diatribe from Mick Jagger's ex-wife on the moral compass of this country is more than I can convey.
I stood and turned my back on her when she said that our going into Iraq was immoral. Grace grabbed my leg and begged me to sit down. I did. The pulse was pounding in my throat. I have never had to sit and be attacked like that. I have never been in a position where I had to be quiet. It was horrible. But for Debbie I kept silent.
She lost the crowd at that point anyway. A few people boo'd. Then most people began talking among themselves.
She made herself irrelevant.
Still, I am not kidding or just being typical dramatic Princess Crabby when I tell you how it hurt to sit and just take it.
