FanPost

Open Thread 6-14

Since there's no open thread on the main page, here's one to discuss what you wish: trial, football, and various tangents, which are always the best part of BSD. Someone asked about the Success with Honor quote before, so here's a link to the full commencement speech. It took place in 1973, during Vietnam, post Watergate, and it a time of major disillusionment, as Coach Paterno mentions. Perhaps our times are similar now? But Paterno's words are still encouraging.
