Love thy neighbor 

I think this Quaker student missed religion class:
Even a pie in the face couldn't silence conservative pundit William Kristol.

Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard and former chief of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle, was splattered by a student during a speech about U.S. foreign policy at Earlham College Tuesday.

Members of the audience jeered the student, then applauded as Kristol wiped the pie from his face and said, ''Just let me finish this point,'' the Palladium-Item reported.

The student, who was not immediately identified, was suspended and could face expulsion following a disciplinary review, Earlham Provost Len Clark said Wednesday. Clark also issued a written apology complimenting Kristol for his ''graciousness.''

Earlham is a private Quaker college of 1,200 students in Richmond, about 70 miles east of Indianapolis.
