I’ve thought for a long time whether I should post a rant from Keith Olbermann. I know he is a controversial person (just like his Fox News counterpart), but for me his rants are the only one in the media which come even close to the famous Network speech.
The Rolling Stone compiled a list of their Top Five Rants of Olbermann.
After being reminded of the following quote by Randy Pausch, I knew what kind of speech has to come next:
Never underestimate the importance of having fun. I’m dying and I’m having fun. And I’m going to keep having fun every day because there’s no other way to play it.
So I’ll start this week with a hilarious speaker most of you might only know for her acting: Carrie Fisher roasting George Lucas at the AFI Life Achievement Award 2005.
I can’t imagine how hard it must be to find the right words when a friend dies. But I’m sure, that John Cleese (and the other members of Monty Python) found the right words in the eulogy given in tribute to Graham Chapman.
But what is brave about this speech? Listen for yourself.
