    Our pal PK gave the commencement address at his alma mater - Ohio U. JFK speech at American U it's not:

    I'll leave the likes of Boom to embarrass the dear PK, but count me among those who do not understand the practice of the "honorary doctorate" - what a cheapening of the educational experience.

    I wonder if he'll make Tiki call him 'Doctor King' on the air.

    Better than asking him to call him Doctor Love.

    I honestly believed that we couldn't make enough fun of PK here.



    Until now.

    Well Peter has sure set the bar low for future Ohio U commencement addresses. Most commencement addresses I have heard typically quote great philosophers and world leaders. King quotes Bob Costas and Jimmy Johnson nuff said.
