Rove commencement address canceled.


Under heavy pressure from students, New England prep school Choate Rosemary Hall has decided to cancel Karl Rove’s address at its commencement ceremony this year. Instead, Rove will speak to the campus on Feb. 11. Headmaster Edward J. Shanahan said that about “80 percent of the communications he received from students, parents and alumni supported having Rove speak with students in a setting outside a graduation.”
