ATLANTA -- According to some local blogs, Ted Turner gave a short speech at the Oglethorpe University commencement on May 12. Someone even commented that it was "Twitter-length."
However, this wasn't the case with this honorary degree recipient. It simply began raining.
During the outdoor ceremony, while he accepted his award, it began raining causing him to shorten his address.
However, Turner did remark, "this is the 46th one I've received, but this is the first time it's rained," along with some other acknowledgements before taking his seat.
