Outrage, dispair, Facebook grumbling, that the Somerville congressman is their commencement speaker.

Be sure to read the quotes from the journalism and poli-sci major who is particularly incensed because Capuano got BU some money to fix up part of Comm. Ave.

The Outraged Liberal tells them to grow up and suggests the particular student outraged over sidewalks consider a profession where she doesn't have to do critical thinking.
