The link provided above has the audio recording of Mr. Buchholz speech. Unfortunately the text is unavailable right now, and given, it seems a little dry for the first half – but if you continue to listen, about half way through, it gets really interesting as he discusses information regarding the economy and education. (I know, it still sounds dry, but he puts it in interesting light… :))
