So I saw the Chief today...not exactly in the flesh, but on closed circuit. His speech was very entertaining. Second best was the carpenter dude who spoke representing the craftsmen and women. He was very thoughtful and well-spoken. It made me a little uneasy, though, because it seemed like people were clapping extra for him as if to suggest "wow, I can't believe some dumb carpenter can speak the English language properly!" Uh, yes...there are smart people who haven't gone to law school. There are smart people who didn't go to college. In fact, there are plenty of them who are smarter and more talented than you. So have a little humility, okay?

Comments:
I was a little disturbed by Justice Moyer's comments about how impressed he was that they were able to find a "worker" who could speak. It almost sounded as though he meant it literally.

Maybe they just liked what he had to say
 
Hey Mike, why is it so hard to get a summer job or is it just me?
 
I'd like to think it was because they liked what he had to say. But there were people sitting behind me in the room I was in who seemed totally amazed and were making elitist noises behind me.

Wait...I can remove comments, but there's still that dumb message there? That's totally dumb.
