LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Ann Coulter brought her edgy brand of conservatism to the University of Wyoming, just a year after controversy erupted there over an appearance by a Vietnam-era radical.

Despite an hour-long weather delay, her appearance Thursday night drew about 1,500 people, including about three dozen protesters.

A few in the crowd heckled Coulter during her talk only to draw sharp barbs from Coulter and applause from most of the crowd.

The school drew widespread criticism for its handling of an appearance by Bill Ayers, who was a member of the 1960s Weather Underground group and is now a professor.

An anonymous donor upset with Ayers' appearance paid for half of Coulter's $20,000 speaking fee.
