After the somewhat unfortunate affair of staff striking over the choices made by its then-principal, Robert Poupart, Bishop's University in Quebec now has a new one. I have no comment on this since I only met Poupart once (he seemed a decent fellow at the time) and don't know the replacement at all.

What I do have a comment on is this:

"The Search Committee was unanimous in its recommendation to the Bishop's
community and the Corporation," said Dr. Robert "Squee" Gordon, President of
the Corporation (Board) and Chair of the Search Committee.

"Squee"? What grown man, especially with a doctorate, calls himself "Squee" on a press release about a university appointment?

(Update (08/07/01): Paul Wells of Macleans likes the new hire.)

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
