Why do ALL Liberal Arts teachers look like they idolize Richard Simmons?
When I graduated from the Univ of Minnesota in May of ‘03, it was a huge event for me - considering I was about 15 years old than the average graduate.
Our commencement speaker was Judge Thomas Buergenthal of the International Court of Justice. Although not as controversial as Mumia, I still grimaced while listening to his speech. I remained seated while many of the mush-filled minds stood up and applauded at the end of his speech.
I told myself “I’ll say something to him if I have to shake his hand or accept my diploma from him”. Thankfully, it didn’t come to that.
But if someone as controversial as Mumia had given the commencement speech at my graduation, you can rest assured I’d have walked out.
