The Pie-ing of William Kristol

On March 29th, conservative commentator William Kristol was giving a speech at Earlham College. About thirty minutes in, somebody served him dessert (from the Chronicle of Higher Education - subscription required):

That's because a student climbed onto the stage in Goddard Auditorium at the college, in Richmond, Ind., and threw an ice-cream pie, topped with a cherry, into the pundit's face.
Nice (he says sarcastically). Chris Hardie, a graduate of Earlham, reflects nicely on this event.
