May 27, 2011Earl Jasper "EJ" Radina graduated from high school this morning in the endzone at Cardinal Stadium, in Glendale. He gave the keynote address and received a standing ovation from the student body at the end of his speech. Given the restraints the school put him under (his original speech was heavily edited and he was "encouraged" to not use his hands, and he was reprimanded for walking "too aggressively" to the podium during rehearsal. Hey, he was excited), I would say it was nothing short of amazing that he pulled it off, but he did and I'm proud of him. A standing O. Incredible. Simply incredible.

I just love that funky, found, faded sepia look. Need to keep noodling this for a unique new story telling device.
