Gore’s no gentleman

 

The most serious challenge to civilization in Tennessee's history: The Al Gore Memorial mansion and SUV collection

Received a “D” in Natural Science while partying at Harvard.

In his commencement speech at Hamilton College on Sunday, former Vice President Al Gore told the graduates that global warming is “the most serious challenge our civilization has ever faced.”

Hyperbole? From Obama’s fellow Nobel Peace Prize winner and coreligionist? Perish the thought. Besides, the science is settled – Gore might have learned that had he paid attention in science class.

  1. HamCol (as we called it in the 60s) was THE party school in my day – the coolest guys on earth went there so if the pattern has stayed the same, the good news in Al Gore’s speech is that none of the grads was likely paying ANY attention!

  2. Afeter a great deal of research I declare my DU was the Party school….HamCol was a contender…
    April commencement ?
    Energy saving startegy ?
    More time to party.
    Harvard started as a Seminary.
    Gore is helping finish it off as to believability…

  3. Peter: After some hilarious flashbacks, I concur with your assessment about DU; oh, the frat parties I went…was that YOU in the toga in 1966? :-)

    Harvard did indeed begin as a seminary and it remains so to this day. The only thing that has changed is the school’s understanding of the Trinity: Today it’s Rousseau, Marx and Gaia. Are there any of the great schools remaining?

  5. Probably …my Freshman Year !!!!
    Kappa Sigma…..

    Harvard started as a school for Indians, i.e., “Native Americans”.

    The press was housed in the imposing brick edifice of Harvard Indian College – once the centerpiece of America’s oldest institution of higher learning, now nearly forgotten.
