    Havenít had a chance yet to watch all the way through but if bloggers as diverse as Ace and The Anchoress are saying itís a must-see, Iíll take my chances on blind-posting it.

    If you canít spare the full 25 minutes, watch the last 10 or so.

    Turns out thereís a deep well of wisdom hidden behind that masturbating bear. There are roughly 80 different items about this speech on Google News, and every last one of them looks to be a rave. Out: Conan OíBrien, late-night host. In: Conan OíBrien, motivational speaker?

    I grew up in Hanover and a town 18 miles north, my dad (a Dartmouth graduate) was a director of an art gallery at Dartmouth's Hopkins Center. That was cool to watch. Thanks Megi.

    I have a new found respect for Conan after that. Great address.
