Guest DarkMatchJobber Posted May 29, 2007 Share Posted May 29, 2007 Finally, completing our college theme, being an institution of higher learning doesn’t ensure that the school will avoid traveling the lower roads. Connecticut’s Sacred Heart University, during its May 13 graduation ceremony, bestowed an honorary doctorate on Vince McMahon. Charles Manson must’ve been unavailable. McMahon’s speech to the Class of ’07 was prefaced by an explanation that the honor is in recognition of “all you are and all you promise to be.” A Catholic institution, Sacred Heart’s mission statement encourages a “responsibility for the common good of society.” To that end, no clips of McMahon’s vulgar, kid-targeting WWE TV shows were shown. And, so as not to embarrass him or the school, a long roll call of drug-afflicted and prematurely deceased pro wrestlers also was avoided. Incidentally, because he’s the recipient of an honorary doctorate, Dr. McMahon will remain unable to legally prescribe steroids to himself and to his wrestlers. This was by New York Post columnist Phil Musnick who I believe has targeted the WWE and Vince before but still this is unnecessarily sad for a serious journalist to waste time criticisng an entertainment format that's not as 'vulgar' as half the stuff on network television.
