On Convocations and Economic Stratification

"You guys have it real easy. I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country -Rushmore. Now for some of you it doesn't matter: You were born rich, and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the cross hairs and take them down. Just remember: they can buy anything, but they can't buy backbone -don't let them forget that. Thank you."
- Herman Blume, Rushmore (1998)
