I never understood honorary degrees. I guess if someone had to leave in their last year and then went on to achieve success in the field it would make a little sense, but not really. Seems like the administration trying to put Petty's tooth in their grin.

Nothing like rewarding a person that overdosed, with a PhD.  Does this show the significance of the Doctorate that Jill Biden has too?  

I worked with many who worked hard and long for their degrees, and not one of them did drugs or wrote a thesis that couldn't pass and English grammar test.

Ahhhh.  But that was some years ago, and College has been "Woke" since then...............................

It is the same with the plethora of award shows, janice.

Idea:  I know, let's get a bunch of people in the entertainment business who would be waiters or toll booth collectors if they couldn't pretend to be someone else, convince the television networks to televise it, the women can wear extravagant, impractical clothes,  and -- and -- here's the best part.

We give each other awards for doing nothing worthy of them

There's a southern accent, where I come from
The young 'uns call it country, the Yankees call it dumb
I got my own way of talking, but everything gets done
With a southern accent, where I come from

Now that drunk tank in Atlanta is just a motel room to me
Think I might go work Orlando, if them orange groves don't freeze
Got my own way of working, but everything is run
With a southern accent, where I come from

For just a minute there I was dreaming
For just a minute it was all so real
For just a minute she was standing there, with me

There's a dream I keep having, where my momma comes to me
And kneels down over by the window, and says a prayer for me
Got my own way of praying, but every one's begun
With a southern accent, where I come from

Got my own way of living, but everything gets done
With a southern accent, where I come from

What a great song. Just... wow.

I remember my stepdad getting this on vinyl. My intro to Tom Petty. It was good to see him in concert with my stepdad a few years later on the Great Wide Open tour.
