I thought about going, but I have to work tomorrow, even though I did try to get off. If you do go, have a great time, and I hope you get to go to the rally.

I wish that I could go, but I have other things that I need to attend to. I hope that you all have a safe trip, and please do let us know about the great time you'll have.

For any of you that are interested the University of Pennsylvania is having a webcast of the commencement on Monday.

Hopefully Bono's speech will be broadcast:

http://www.upenn.edu/commencement/webcast.html

Unfortunately I'll be working, but maybe it will be broadcast on CSpan during the week (the way the Harvard speech was).

I'm sorry, stuff like that always happens to me and I have the worst Bono luck I've been a fan since 1981 but have never gotten to meet him because something always messes up. I really feel for you
