Some men devote their life's work to the pursuit of this high honour, only to be frustrated in their ambitions. Others receive it in the ordinary course of business. And some people receive it for no apparent reason at all.
I have been officially named to the Order of the CBC Shit List for my services to blogging by producer and author Robin Rowland, joining the illustrious Angry in the Great White North , who received his certificate and blazer badge from no less august a CBC personage than Andy Barrie .
Mr. Rowland would like to present the award to me in person, but he can't find me anywhere, and is calling upon his friends to help him in his search.
So an assignment for all the investigative reporters and web geeks out there. Let's go through the blog, find the internal evidence and technical clues and drag this guy out of his closet (an appropriate analogy, he's also a homophobe)
It's possible that Mr. Rowland and I have crossed paths, but if so, he has made no impression in my memory, either. I have encountered so many people with some sort of connection to the CBC over the years that their names and faces have become indistinct in my recollection.
But I've been in the fields of Angus cattle enough as a boy to deal with angry herds.
