Obama speech doesn't turn Boulder students into zombies

News that President Barack Obama would deliver a speech to the nation's schoolchildren caused plenty of parents (and talk-show hosts) (and cable-TV pundits) to freak out -- so much so that the event itself couldn't help being an anticlimax. Obama's text was about as controversial as an endorsement of motherhood, and students at Foothill Elementary captured in the Boulder Daily Camera video above reacted to it with mild boredom. Now can we go back to dealing with some real issues? Please?
