George Bush spoke at commencement exercises at Oklahoma State University (Stillwater, OK) today.
"My advice: Harness the promise of technology without becoming slaves to technology. My advice is that science serves the cause of humanity and not the other way around," the president said.
After the speech, some graduates said they couldn't make out clearly what Bush said because of an echo in the audio system at Boone Pickens Stadium.
I very much want to write an exegesis on this, but it makes me laugh too much.
I beg your forgiveness.
