If you're like me, you probably find the run of commencement addresses tedious, politically tendentious and aesthetically bereft. Well, I've finally found one that's worth listening to. It was given last spring at Harvard, and I really hope that it inspires imitation. The speaker has a fine sense of phrase and diction, and her remarks evince both wisdom and common sense. Would that others were so straightforward and clear. Do let me know what you think.
