You learn something new on Wikipedia every day. Apparently R.A. Montgomery, the co-founder and most prolific author of the Choose Your Own Adventure Series, went to Williams. I had no idea. Pretty much everyone (or at least every male) I knew in my generation was obsessed with these books as kids. I bet this dude would make a great commencement speaker. I mean, his occupation already combines two themes endemic to almost any commencement speech: finding the inner child within and “choosing” the road less traveled. (I realize this is sort of a random post, but wanted to share my excitement). Plus his speech would surely have a really cool name like “Return to the Cave of Time.”
