Perhaps it’s because I’m in Jamaica and don’t give a rat’s ass, or perhaps it’s because I’m becoming even more of a curmudgeon than before: either way – and from an admittedly great distance – I find this week’s commentary/news to be a ribald mix of stupidity, ridiculousness and/or stupendously boring thumb-sucking.
It wasn’t even a cabinet shuffle, for Chrissakes! It was the replacement of ONE PERSON. But the Post, and everyone else, endlessly pokes through the entrails to ascertain the cosmic significance of it all. You know, the replacement of ONE PERSON. Please, Lord, kill me now.
…and, finally, the Toronto Star editorializes in favour of lighting up the downtown core at night. On, um, the same night the downtown core was entirely without power. Because, you know, too many people were using power.
And so on, and so on. And newspaper folks wonder why they’re heading the way of the Dodo. Wonder no more, etc.
Oh, and if one more media person tells us to “keep hydrated” we are going to kill them.
End of rant.
