Big Bird!

What a joke to have Big Bird speak at Villanova’s commencement – and receive an honorary diploma to boot! I am so glad I went to the University of Virginia, which never gives honorary degrees. That’s right – there is no such thing as an honorary diploma from UVa. If you have a degree from my alma mater, you’ve earned it. Villanova should adopt the same policy…and maybe Big Bird would flap away.
