I love this little snippet I came across today.
Speaking at the commencement of the Air Force Academy in Colorado yesterday, Vice-President (and Irish American!) Joe Biden quoted Seamus Heaney in urging the Air Force's next generation to use the most of their opportunities.
And, he said the reason he always quotes Irish poets is not because they are Irish but because they are the best.
