For ‘Click and Clack’At Commencement

In the April 13 article, “Seniors Mixed on ‘Click and Clack’ Choice,” writer Erik Snowberg quotes a senior as saying, “The whole point of going to a good school is having someone impressive speak at graduation.” If that senior has learned a fraction as much as I have from this school, he or she must know what a foolish statement that is. Go ahead, drop out. Transfer to whatever school President Clinton is giving his political speech this year. I’ll see the summary of that talk in the papers, after I have left my own graduation, excited and enthusiatic instead of half asleep.

Come this June, my husband and I will have five degrees from this school, and have been affiliated with MIT for nine years. I anticipate that this will be the best speech I have heard at commencement yet.
