Elie Wiesel was the commencement speaker at Lehigh University; a college in the next town over. I am so bummed. Oh WHY oh WHY did I not choose Lehigh University (which was one of my choices) and WHY oh WHY did I not graduate this year. Life just sucks sometimes, don't it?

Probably because you didn't know at the time that EW would make an appearance this year. =)

Did you just find out, after the fact? Otherwise couldn't you have just gone to the commencement anyway to hear him speak? Or does Lehigh make you have a ticket to attend? My school was small and anyone could just show up.

I went to Lehigh. We picked someone, I don't remember who. A well-known sci-fi author, I think

The president of the university, Peter Likens, may his name stir nausea in all that hear it, decided to invite His friend Ted Turner instead. There was a series of protests later when he annonced that Ted's wife, Hannoi Jane, was also going to speak for an honorary doctorate. Strangely she didn't show...

I'd love to see E. W. though!!!
