Publisher booed at graduation talk
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A newspaper publisher's commencement speech was drowned out by hecklers when she mentioned threats to civil liberties posed by the government's investigation of the terrorist attacks.
Janis Besler Heaphy, publisher of The Sacramento Bee, was delivering the midyear graduation address Saturday to about 17,000 people at California State University in Sacramento.
When Heaphy raised questions about racial profiling, military tribunals, the audience interrupted by clapping and stomping their feet.
