Ann Curry Addresses Wrong School

Maybe her brain stops working after 8 a.m.? When Today show host Ann Curry gave the commencement address at Wheaton College in Massachusetts on Saturday, she accidentally listed alumni from a small evangelical school in Illinois also known as Wheaton. Not that they weren’t impressive—Wes Craven and Billy Graham are alumni of the Illinois school; but the Wheaton she was actually speaking to also had some impressive alums, including Christine Todd Whitman and Catherine Keener. "I am mortified by my mistake, and can only hope the purity of my motive, to find a way to connect with the graduates and to encourage them to a life of service, will allow you to forgive me," Curry said in an open apology letter on Wheaton's website.
