Did the White House ask Georgetown University to hang a drape over religious symbols when President Obama spoke there recently? Sources differ on that issue -- yes it did; no, it didn't; someone thought it was better to cover it up completely rather than partially.
Overwrought hand-wringing, says I. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging that Georgetown is a religious school. I think pretty much everyone knows that. There's also nothing wrong with the President wanting to deliver his messages in a particular way. The fact that he's at Georgetown at all is significant and a feather in Georgetown's cap.
