Best. Commencement. Speech. EVER.
 / 

I take it all back. Sorry, Mark Danner. David Foster Wallace clearly gave the best commencement speech this year at Kenyon College, filled with his trademark meta-metadiscursion, but much less pithy than his usual fare. It teeters at one point right on the edge of trite, but slams it all home marvelously, I think.

I finallyl read it, and I really like it. It made me think without being smarmy or anything. He sounds cool.

I have to say though, this will probably lead to dozens of Kenyon graduates bursting out into giggles when they grocery shopping late at night, for weeks at least.

Is there video or audio of this anywhere?
