God love Ellen Degeneres! She made a surprise appearance at Saturday’s graduation ceremony at Tulane University wearing a bathrobe, saying, “I was told everybody would be wearing robes?” Adding a touch of casual, straight-forward sincerity to the ceremony – the comedian followed speeches by Clinton and Bush No. 1 – Ellen told the graduating class, “You’re amazing people to go through what you’ve gone through.”

Like your author here, Ellen is from the great if not corrupt state of Louisiana. The state of jazz, David Duke, mardi gras, segregation, Edwin Edwards, gumbo, Ann Rice, mosquitos, humidity, Lucinda Williams, the mighty Mississippi, Huey P. Long, plantations, Pat O’s Hurricanes, king cake and…yes, Ellen Degeneres.
