All Around Bad Ass
Of The Day
Dean Mendell D. Morgan, Jr
The Dean of Library Services at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas is hereby declared our All Around Bad Ass of the Day.
What exactly did the good Dean and Chief Book Putter Backerer do that rates such high accolades? Simple, he canceled the library's subscription to the New York Times Wednesday to protest recent stories exposing a secret government program that monitors international financial transactions in the hunt for terrorists.
Said designated Bad Ass Morgan, "Since no one elected the New York Times to determine national security policy, the only action I know to register protest for their irresponsible action (treason?) is to withdraw support of their operations by canceling our subscription as many others are doing. If enough do, perhaps they will get the point."
Yeah, yeah, I know. Some will say that canceling a newspaper subscription is no big deal. But this guy has the spheres to come out and tell the NY Times to go straight to hell... and in the liberal world of American Academia to boot.
In my book, that makes Dean Morgan our All Around Bad Ass of the Day.
Perhaps there is hope for Catholic universities, after all.
