I missed hearing a speech by Buchwald by exactly one year. He was one of the choices for commencement speaker when I graduated college in 1973. I voted for him, but unfortunately a larger bunch of leftist loons voted for Daniel Berrigan. The Class of '74 had more sense, and voted for Buchwald, who did come, and said a few words about losing out the previous year. C'est la vie!

What was I not thinking.
