I was going to say, that my dwindling hopes for the future of American science and technology have now been completely restored! What was I worried about?
Seriously though, it's good that you are trying to get the next generation interested and involved with RP and you have to start somewhere.
As far as mixing politics with the field of RP, I think this was maybe a "first" (and last), since you have to try really hard (and be pretty creative) to come up with a way to mix the two. I think we did pretty well.

Dear RPers,
            Getting off the subject of military aggression for a moment, I’m pleased to convey news (see below) that one of my students got an award for a study she did in my class last year. It was an analysis of the manufacturing of Barbie dolls, as done currently and in a future digital paradigm.
Best regards,
Marshall Burns
PS, and now to chime in on the popular topic of the morning, I’d like to thank all the people who responded to object to the rude response given to our colleague from Iran.
