One wonders at the message below.

Do you know Adam? I have known him for a number of years and find him to be engaging, intellectual and a good critic.

I am sure Adam had a good balance of debate and academic credentials. He isn't a $10,000 a year card cutter, but a professional educator.

Finally, why would you care? Crawl back into your hole and think about how happy you are about your current situation, Mr. Olney.

As my great debater Cleopatra Jones once said to me, "If you have nothing nice to say to me, please don't talk to me at all."

OMG.  I am not sure what criteria Bard used, but there surely must have been
better candidates than this one.
