Graduation – Harvard Style

Writing about web page http://www.guardian.co.uk/g2/story/0,,1800674,00.html

It seems that our Graduation ceremonies actually have a lot going for them – better than this description of Harvard in any case.

The morning graduation exercises were held in a steady drizzle, with hundreds of umbrellas making it impossible for those stranded in the back to see anything. Then, that afternoon, when outgoing (purged) president Larry Summers and venerable newsman Jim Lehrer took the stage for the big Ciceronian round–up, the powers–that–be decided to hold the event indoors to keep the alumni from catching a chill, again condemning a sea of graduates and their waterlogged parents to tread water in the rain. There, those not being treated for pneumonia or hypothermia could watch the speeches on TV monitors.
