With that out of the way...

I’ve done my best to avoid talking about the Rice commencement protests here. Now that her speech is over and the uproar proved to be small and contained, I think it is important to remember what this day is really about -- the students and their families. So my congratulations go out to all the new Boston College alumni. Welcome to the club and best of luck with your chosen path. (If I am ever asked to give a commencement speech "congrats and best of luck" might be the extent of what I say. No one cares about the speech. The students and family just want to hear their names called and walk across a stage.)
