Kurt Vonnegut Speech
"Kurt Vonnegut" commencement speech.In early August of 1997 a file got passed around, attributed to Kurt Vonnegut. He had purportedly given as a commencement speech to a graduating class of some college. A number of colleges were named at various times, MIT being the most prevalent.
In actuality, the article was actually written by the Chicago Tribune's Mary Schmich, two months before. She also wrote a nice follow-up piece. (Sorry there's no link. They put their archive behind a cashwall.)
Wired News has a description of events.
In an effort to immortalize gross stupidity as an object lesson, I've decided to put this on my humor page... and the article is more than a little amusing. :-)
