Wall Street Journal Comments on JP HRO Gala Off Base
We found The Wall Street Journal comments on the speeches at the JP HRO Help Haiti Home Gala way off base as the talks by both President Bill Clinton and Sean Penn were the shortest we’ve ever heard either make and were received by warm and exciting applause and a standing ovation.
“Despite these highlights, a series of 20-plus minute speeches by Mr. Penn (who paired a light goatee with bed head), former President Bill Clinton, Alaska Structures Inc. founder Richard W. Hotes (who also read a poem he had composed) and the former Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe of Haiti made some guests dream fondly of long and tedious award shows, perhaps even Sunday’s Globes.”
