And yet even in times of trouble

Only from CMU:

From an article in the Post Gazette:

About a dozen members of Carnegie Mellon University's College Republicans gathered around a flagpole at the center of campus yesterday to express their support for President Bush and American troops on the verge of war with Iraq.

snippage to relevant part...

Members also waited patiently, though with a trace of annoyance, as about 10 counter-demonstrators calling themselves KGB picketed with signs that appeared to have no relevance, like "You have a secret admirer -- in bed."

At one point, the KGB group marched in a circle around the flagpole and other students.

"It is my firm belief that it is a great mistake to hold firm beliefs," said one KGB member who identified himself as John Balthazar, only to later tell someone that his name was Ed. He said he was a sophomore at the university and that his group wasn't objecting to the College Republicans' position but was "committed to hijacking protests and college tours."
