Update: Apparently it's fake. Which is disappointing. I hate you kids.
Are those rapscallions in Philly pulling a late April Fool's trick or is this thing happening for serious? If so-- road trip!

In a controversial effort to provide a final bit of wisdom before students graduate, the Wharton School has invited New York financier Bernie Madoff to speak at this year's graduation ceremony.
Madoff, former non-executive chairman of the NASDAQ stock exchange, has recently become known for his elaborate Ponzi scheme for which he pled guilty to an 11-count criminal complaint in March. He will address Wharton's Class of 2009 via videoconference on May 17 at 5:30 p.m. at Franklin Field.
