And it was over four years ago, so it may have all blown over by now.
I am all for more pomp and circumstance. I think that we
underestimate the importance of "ritual" and I say that in the least
religious way possible. We used to have very specific rights of
passage that we no longer have across the culture in the way that we
used to. If they exist they are not as out there as they once were.
The use of ritual action, like going to graduation ceremonies when you
get that MA, is a great way to mark a passage in life.
