Jon Stewart Tells A Room Full Of Overachievers That Success In College Doesn't Mean Much

Jon Stewart's timeless commencement address to the graduates of the College of William & Mary in 2004 contains a few massively powerful statements. At 5:25, he discusses the state of the world (not good). At 6:54, he describes the futility of the wars America is involved in. And at 11:51, he talks about why many of the students present are about to feel very alone. My favorite moment comes at 13:03, when Stewart sticks up for the entire generation of graduates.

Lady Antebellum announced it had changed its name to Lady A on June 11 as part of its commitment to "examining our individual and collective impact and marking the necessary changes to practice antiracism."

Antebellum refers to an era in the American south before the civil war when black people were held as slaves.
