President Bush will give the commencement address at Oklahoma State University today. But even in the late, great state of Oklahoma protesters are ready and waiting.

The following is from KTEN in Stillwater.

Protesters wait to greet president in Stillwater

STILLWATER, Okla. A protest of President Bush's appearance is being held about a block from Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

About 250 demonstrators held signs as a band played anti-Bush songs. One protester held a sign that read -- quote -- "Worst President Ever."

Protester Laurie Keeley of Tulsa says she had to take advantage of the fact that Bush came to Oklahoma.

Stillwater police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers were on hand, but the protest was peaceful.

But some O-S-U grads thought the protest was inappropriate. Biological Sciences major Vincent Miller of Toronto, Canada, says the day should be about the graduates and that Bush was honoring them with his presence.
