Quoting RAW to the grads
Who do the college valedictorians quote? Robert Anton Wilson, of course.
Ann Clark, writing for the Santa Rose Press Democrat, pens a tribute to Santa Rose Junior College and looks back fondly at highlights of her student days. One happy moment:
"The highlight, however, was my May 1996 graduation where, as a valedictorian, I stood under a canopy of oaks on a hot May morning, quoting from Robert Anton Wilson's essay 'Ten Reasons to Get Out of Bed in the Morning' and telling my classmates how critically they are needed. I truly felt like a child of the college, wanting to honor my 'parent' by doing her proud."
The essay Clark mentions, one of RAW's more inspirational pieces, is reprinted in The Illuminati Papers.
