Yesterday, the Secretary of Convention was wearing a bright green blazer that looked sponge painted. Quite a fashion statement! Here is the BREAKING NEWS: today he is wearing a bluish plaid jacket.

At first, I thought this was simply GC fashions that are above my pay grade. (I am wearing clerical garb every day, at least partly due to a startling lack of sartorial creativity.)

Now I am concerned about another possibility. Our Sectetary is a cleric, and yet he shuns the proverbial collar. Perhaps he is not wearing a clergy shirt because of the exorbitant cost of Almy clerical shirts. Maybe he’s been shopping at his local parish Thrift Shop. After all, the Secretary’s job is a volunteer post.

This injustice must be corrected soon, so that our beloved Secretary can buy the clothes he wants.

On further reflection, perhaps he wears the bright jackets so he’ll be visible from the rear extremities of this vast room.

7WD will endeavor to learn the truth about Dr. Straub’s fashions.

(To be clear: I’m just having some fun here. Dr. Straub is a fashion maestro.)

    When I read breaking “newd” (read: nude), clothes isn’t exactly what I had in mind.

    I thought you were going to say that General Convention had endorsed Orthodox baptism practices.

  2. This time last year it was rabbits and who stole Dave Walker’s bike rack (or some such!). How do you manage to get such exclusives year after year?

    Great reporting! Can’t wait to hear what the PB is going to be wearing – maybe mouse ears instead of her pointy hatted thingie? Keep sneaking around and reporting on the IMPORTANT stuff – everyone else can do the votes, committees etc.
    Love it!

    Aw, shucks. He corrected the title from “Breaking Newd” to “Breaking News.”

    I though “Breaking Newd” had so many more possibilities.
