  1. I attended Tulane’s Commencement a few weeks ago and Natasha Tretheway recieved an honorary degree during the ceremonies. Best Commencement I’ve ever been to! Morning graduation not only included a jazz band, cash bars, and the Dalai Lama as the commencment speaker but Dr. John also recieved an honorary doctorate and then the newly minted Dr. Dr. John played for the crowd while the Dalai Lama and the University President danced under their fancy parasol. Only in New Orleans!!

    1. Don’t forget Allen Toussaint was also honored at that commencement. I love the pictuures of the four of them, Dr. Trethewey, Dr. Toussaint, Dr. Lama, and Dr. Dr. John.
