This came as a comment to a blog post from early last summer, Everything I know in 15 minutes:
I don't know if you know anything or not about high school speech, but I do an event called Oratorical Declamation, which is basically a student giving a commencement address or a famous speech by someone else as if they were the author. I have used your speech all year and I can't tell you how many comments I've received on how fantastic and original the speech is! In fact, I've taken first place at three tournaments with it. I hope you don't come after me for using it without consent, but I just thought you should know that your message is being spread, at least throughout Illinois, and that everyone loves it (especially the part about the gods punishing your hubris by giving you Brady)!
As a former high speech contestant and speech coach, this comment was truly a compliment and a very, very nice thing for this young man to write. I have great hope for this generation. Isn't cool that world really is full of kind and thoughtful people - especially young ones?
Although my now iconic stature makes me feel about as old as it is possible to be.
