Oh dear.

Colin McGinn is not a man I greatly admire after listening to him speak at his honorary degree award at Kent University last year.

For half an hour he talked about himself. He made 9/11 sound boring and he said something about there being no grammar schools in the north as he was growing up. Aside from the one my dad went to, obviously. If he's a better writer I wouldn't know, but he was a dreadful public speaker.

Compare to my sister's graduation where Bill Bryson was there. He was basically saying stuff like 'you're all awesome! be happy! Bush isn't -your- president!'

Why we couldn't get David Suchet in ours I don't know. We really lucked out.
