This Is our Village

Monday, January 11, 2016


In another long drawn-out comment by former high school teacher Stew Richland on Gary Olman's blog, Stew states: "In Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera, The Mikado,  the phrase, 'short, sharp, shock' was used to mean 'a quick severe punishment.' which a prisoner awaiting his beheading is about to experience. This is what I would proscribe for our UCO President."

Later in the same comment Stew says: "Well, Mr. Howe,  (also  Pete Cruise) I think that the “short, sharp, shock,”  will be coming your way this March.

Thankfully for the three of us—and I would like to think for the whole Village—the experience that Stew likens to a beheading is one he would proscribe, not prescribe. Thank you, Stew. We appreciate your sentiments.
