Author and outdoorsman Will Weaver told the University of Minnesota, Morris' 2009 graduating class on Saturday that they are unique in that, like those in Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities," they are coming of age during the best of times and the worst of times.


And, quoting a Bob Dylan lyric, Weaver wished this for them: "May you build a ladder to the stars. And climb on every rung. And may you stay forever young."
