Renowned internet blowhard, Marty Peretz takes a dig at my alma mater for having Angela Davis as our commencement speaker. Well, at least we're in good company.
If it makes any difference, she sucked. Really bad. But not enough for me to want to hang my head in shame. Not at all.
No problem, Brendan. The difficulty with ole Marty's screed, other than the fact it was issued from Martin Peretz's skull, was that it was uninformed about the previous year's speaker, in the shadow of whom a Calvin Coolidge-impersonating koala would have performed prodigies of rhetoric. And anyway, I thought Davis did all right, politics aside.
