Brief note about being patronised

I really hate CAM, the Cambridge Alumni Magazine.  Stop making assumptions about the sort of person I am just because I went to your University!  I might look into stopping them from sending it to me.  The Trinity Alumni Magazine is even worse, of course.  Oddly enough, the Trinity Annual Record is far less provoking, with its serious obituaries of proper academics, and its transcriptions of usually reasonably worthy speeches, and the section about the college's charity work in London.  Cambridge has appalling PR -- people are being paid by the university and colleges to represent the place as far more self-indulgent than it is.
