He Said to Speak More Gooder

19 May

Because it happened in my ‘hood, I thought I’d call attention to David McCullough’s very amusing commencement address today at Boston College.

Apparently, he spoke about the use of language among America’s youth, and called upon the graduates to speak better, without using words like “like,” “you know,” “totally,” and “actually.”

“Just imagine if in his inaugural address John F. Kennedy had said, ‘Ask not what your country can, you know, do for you, but what you can, like, do for your country actually,” he said.

Ha ha ha … that’s pretty funny.
