'If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools'
Rudyard Kipling's classic poem is repleat with wisdom and resonates two days after graduation. The speech I gave at graduation tried to be balanced and non political but the L-Orizzont decided to completely misquote what I said. Luckily they also gave me a different name .... Howard! How can you have a relatively simple job and still do a terrible job in a simple job? They didn't even understand the basic English used and created a meaning from my speech which defies understanding. It makes you despair about local journalism.
On a positive note, graduation was fun and a great experience ... made special by family and friends.
