A wonderful commencement address!

Hi All,

Some of you will be graduating this spring. I encourage you to take a few minutes and enjoy a commencement address that Bill Cosby delivered at Carnegie Mellon a few years ago. There are a few moments where he is clearly focused on undergraduates, but most of it is relevant to us all, and I think it's a wonderful talk. Cosby's address is also a terrific example of effective public speaking... after a few words of introduction, he tells just one story (which begins about 6 minutes in) and that one story delivers a powerful message.
