Better late than never, Dalhousie Costume Studies drama edition

Editor’s note: Bob Doyle has a bone to pick with Dalhousie and the uni’s associate professor of Costume Studies, Lynn Sorge, owing to events first described by my organ way back in March of 1997. Why wait so long to talk? I dunno. Maybe there’s a Rip Van Winkle sorta thing happenin’ here.
