Sell it at face value? You mean give away for free, since nobody pays for graduation tickets.

if this was sarcasm.... then well played sir.

As an aside, what would prevent somebody from donning their old cap and gown and stripping off the year marker on the tassel and attending graduation again. Nothing? Good, I'll show up 30 minutes late and get a seat in the front row.

Yes, indeed, it was a blend of excitement, being in class, and a nasty cold that resulted in this double-post

I actually checked the page but, somehow, reading "President Obama to give 2010 Commencement Address" did not actually register in my brain

That said, I have no regrets

this is great for the University and the students to have the sitting POTUS speak at commencement, regardless of your politics.

I was fortunate enough to have GHWB (Bush 41) address my commencement and it is an unforgettable experience.
