Given that the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies is almost certainly not going to offer me a job, I shall feel no compunction at calling attention to their editorial failures.

Yes, the place has a silly name, and no doubt the students have to learn to cope with it very quickly, and “Dick Vet” is a lot quicker to say than the formal title. However that’s no excuse to become so inured that your alumni newsletter contains the line, “a unique opportunity to see the growth and strength of the Dick burgeoning year by year.”
