Just a Little Schmutz on Your Face
Sen. Carl Levin was in the middle of taking questions during a visit ata Michigan cafe on Monday when a Michigan State University senior threw a pie at him. “Someone who "throws something at somebody or hits somebody with something doesn't understand the blessings of America," the Senator said, as he wiped the pie from his face. According to the Big Rapids Pioneer, Levin also said that we are blessed to li e in a country where one has the right to free speech, but that kind of violence wasn't acceptable. The pie-throwing incident came moments after another student delivered a mini-speech blaming Levin for his stance on foreign policy issues, including "Israel war crimes against the Palestinian people. " The student was later arrested.
