    Default What I could find so far on Ron's speech at Lexinton VA last night

    First, after having to go to tickets for the event due to 'overwhelming demand relative to available seats' they then apparently livestreamed to another theatre for overflow (see update) http://news.blogs.wlu.edu/2013/01/09...ngton-and-lee/ and https://twitter.com/wlunews/status/291194297624178692

    This blog is the only supporter write up I've seen: http://madisonliberty.blogspot.com/2...ington-va.html

    and there is this blog by what appears to be an economics prof at the college, saying 'Yes, yes, a Ron Paul speech is very exciting, but let's not forget ourselves and applaud for a gold standard': (PS they edit/removed my comments)
    http://econ398.academic.wlu.edu/2013...gold-standard/

    And then there is this instagram picture by someone of whom Carol might disapprove (hover cursor near bottom of picture): http://instagram.com/p/Uh2WXetSoh/

    And the ONLY quote I've seen is this one:

    Victoria
    ‏@VictoriaBell
    "Maybe we should send the W&L honor code to Washington." - Ron Paul at Washington and Lee University this evening.

    another picture: http://instagram.com/p/Uht4C6EgEk/

    I'm hoping more will turn up. He apparently had a question answer section, and those are always the best feature, imho.
    "Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesn't want to hear. -Ron Paul

    I woulda thought that C4L or his FB page would have a write-up by now. The way this initially was handled regarding booking made it sound as if those in charge were clueless or were from mars and didn't realize what size of audience Ron is capable of bringing out. Sounds like it went alright but this lack of aftermath publicity doesn't really excite me for future speeches.

    It coincided with a huge furor on gun contrul and with the forum being down so we couldn't push it up as automatically either. But in the future that won't be the case. If they won't spread what he says, I and others who find his speaking as powerful will need to put ways into place to do it. Get media emails out in advance, or whatever we can do.

    Utah handled it very well.
