"The Return Of Sathington Willoughby"

[Sound Of Cheering Crowd]

Fellow colleagues!
Distinguished members of the press!
Ladies and gentlemen.

I'd like to take this opportunity
To personally and humbly
Thank each and every one of you
For joining us
At this particular event.

It is my hope
That we can utilize
This meeting of the minds
To successfully convey
The essence
Of our platform
To you,
A grand and noble audience.

As I look out among the faces,
I reflect,
Finding console
In the words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Who said:
"We have nothing to fear
But fear itself."

Paranoia is a disease unto itself.
And may I add:
The person standing next to you,
May not be
Who they appear
To be.
So take precautions!

"A mind is a terrible thing to waste."
This is true!
Many a young person has fallen prey
To the substances that alter the perspective
Of any right-thinking individual.

The problem with the youth today
Is... because of their
Inexperience with the world
They cannot
Attempt to grasp
The ideals
Set forth
By myself and those who
Preceded me.

But... as history has shown...
They will come around
And... embrace
Our philosophies
And... become
Model citizens in their own right.

God bless this great nation.
