Q1x00061_9 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has a full schedule today, including appearances at Columbia University in New York and, via video, the National Press Club in Washington.

Update at 10:37 a.m. ET: State and local officials want to punish Columbia University. The speaker of the state Assembly tells The New York Sun that legislators will "consider reducing capital aid and other financial assistance" to the school in response to the Iranian's appearance.

"We should look at everything involving Columbia, whether it be capital projects, city and state, or other related things that we do in the city for them," Councilman David Weprin, chairman of the city's Finance Committee, says.
