Who is it? Have you found someone yet? When are you going to announce who the Convocation speaker is?
These are the questions that have surrounded me for almost a year during my tenure as the 2009 Convocation chair.
In the bars.
When I’m standing at the restroom sink in the Straight.
I cannot avoid this constant nagging over the identity of the 2009 Convocation speaker. And it’s getting really annoying.
Well, friends. The time has come and I will be announcing the Convocation speaker in the short term. Long gone will be the days of me trying to spread rumors that the speaker is Kermit the Frog, former disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich or Matthew Fox of Lost. (Columbia actually had Fox two years ago. Boom. Roasted.)
