A Final Note From Philly
On Monday morning, I attended my niece's graduation at the University of Pennsylvania. The commencement speaker was James Baker, former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury and later Secretary of State under George Bush, Sr. Much of the speech was a tedious justification of the policies of the Republican presidents he served. However, it seems obligatory to open a major speech at Penn with some quotes from Benjamin Franklin, the founder of the university. The quote at the bottom of the video screen was much more meaningful to the students.
TOMORROW: What's Greek, Egyptian, Assyrian and Babylonian and overrun with lawyers?
