If adjectives relate to a specific person, they often go before that person's name or designation. For example:

La pauvre Marie. -- Poor Marie.
Le compétent Docteur Quinn. -- The competent Dr. Quinn.

-- Chris (not a native speaker).

Oh, I just saw that this is explained pretty well in the lesson anyway. Did you have a question regarding that explanation?
