change nameI was assiduously building my network on LinkedIn today when I noticed the “new people from Premier” (my current company). Knowing that the “new people” are almost never from the Premier that I’m from, I obediently checked, only to find these people …

They include an unfortunate individual in the position of interim manager named Dick Slob.

I submit that he should run, not walk, to the nearest hall of officialdom where name-changing occurs. His first name is an epithet; his last a slur.

Guaranteed: he changes the name, the interim comes off his title.
