Reader: I wanted to see Paul Ryan speak, not disrupt event

Yesterday, while covering veep candidate Paul Ryan's speech in Lakewood, our Sam Levin spoke with six students banned from the event because they weren't enthusiastic fans of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Lots of intriguing comments followed, including this from one of the aforementioned students, who insists the plan was about listening, not disrupting the speaker.
