1) Oh such a perfect day: ... for an outdoor high school graduation. Sunny, with a high near 70. East wind between 9 and 13 mph. Tonight, partly cloudy, with a low around 54. Southeast wind between 7 and 9 mph. (Forecast by the National Weather Service.)

2) It is unimaginably hard to do this—to stay conscious and alive in the adult world, day in and day out.

I wish you way more than luck: The Melrose High School Class of 2012 graduates tonight at 6 p.m. on Fred Green Field, and the previous quote and link is my gift to you graduates. It's 22-minutes of the greatest commencement speech—often entertaining, always illuminating—worth listening to.
