Harvard doesn't like J.K. Rowling

Apparently Northwestern isn't the only school whose seniors aren't happy over the choice for graduation speaker.

Some Harvard students didn't like the choice of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling as their speaker.

I don't blame them.

However, you would think someone who graduated from Harvard would have better grammar.

"I think we could have done better," shrugged computer science major Kevin Bombino. He says Rowling lacks the gravitas a Harvard commencement speaker should have.

"You know, we're Harvard. We're like the most prominent national institution. And I think we should be entitled to … we should be able to get anyone. And in my opinion, we're settling here. "

Italics mine.
