    Snowden voted graduation speaker

    We at the New School for Modern Day Journalism have voted to have Edward Snowden as our graduation speaker in September. We graduate in September so we can be different than the rest. Our new nominee for grad speaker, Edward Snowden, has become a sort of folk hero in journalism circles. After all, he went to the esteemed Washington Post where Tricky Dick Nixon was outed, and the wonderful Wikileaks people to spill the beans on the NSA, his former employer. Our only concern is that Edward will probably not be allowed to leave Russia where he seems to have gained asylum. So, we may be forced to have our graduation day in Mother Russia. If Edward is finally arrested by U.S. authorities, then we can expect him as our speaker for graduation here in America. But, we may have to wait for awhile. He should be getting out of jail in about 2088 after being in the fed slammer for 75 years.
