Late last week, George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, died at age 94. Officials in Pennsylvania and New Jersey have since joined leaders across the world in remembering Bush as a tireless humanitarian who did not let political differences prohibit friendships and cooperation. Meanwhile, Temple professor Marc Lamont Hill continues to draw fire for remarks made in a speech to the United Nations Thursday in which he criticized Israel and its treatment of Palestinians.
