Loyalty is not something ingrained in students at this spirit-deprived school. Even with all the excitement, we knew deep inside that Barack Obama (CC ’83, now some kind of important person) would never speak at Class Day.
After all, what with saving the world, how could he possibly have time to visit his Alma Mater?
As it turned out, our intuition was correct – Obama won’t be our Class Day speaker. He’ll be the commencement speaker for other schools.
That’s right, schools, pluralized. Two days ago, the White House issued a little-noticed press release announcing that Barack Obama would serve as commencement speaker at three colleges: Arizona State, Notre Dame, and the US Naval Academy.
Bwog’s analysis would suggest that he’ll touch on themes such as “the economy,” “the future,” and “you unemployable history majors.”
The press release promises “more details” at a later date, but we’re not holding our breath. We’re too bitter.
