Re: Commencement Address

The Rockford paper is publishing emails from people around the country who read about the Hedges speech. This one is my favorite. Too bad we all can’t be as enlightened and sensitive as this guy:

* �I have heard that college students generally have been becoming more conservative, and, well, less sophisticated and aware of current events. Living near Harvard and MIT, I don�t get to see these trends. But I guess the dumb, bizarre behavior of Rockford�s graduation class indicates that the �Dumb and Dumber� mentality does indeed exist.�

What an ass.
