I was ahead of my time. In 1974 when I graduated from Junior College, Brokaw was simply the local news anchor in LA. He was the commencment speaker at the graduation ceremony which I chose not to attend 31 years ago. HA!
LOL!!!!!!!! That's funny -- if he wasn't any better back then -- you made a wise choice. Never did figure out what his theme was except to say there would never be another greatest generation and you people graduating are basically worthless. That's what I took away. My son thoroughly enjoyed booing as he was in the graduating class!
