Can you use your clout to get me a ticket to the commencement? Can you? Please?!


I find it so interesting that you remember your commencement speaker. I work at a university and just about every alum I run into can't remember theirs.


That is wicked cool, as you locals like to say. (And I hope you will overlook Sen. Obama's grammatical error above and vote for him just the same, come November.)

My commencement speaker at Michigan (undergraduate degree) was Lawrence Kasdan, and he was terrific. My commencement speaker in graduate school, also at Michigan, was Murray Louis, and I remember little of what he said. No clue who spoke at my conservatory graduation.


He made another one in the address itself: "My father left my mother and I when I was two. " Eek. Nice speech though: http://www.wfsb.com/news/16389467/detail.html
