OK so Mr. Cherry, mouthpiece of a generation has offended some people…this is a surprise to many??!! That’s his stock and trade! Generally his oral blathering is focused on a hockey-centric universe but this time he mentioned ‘seal’. OMG.
Come on folks…the real insult here is not that Dear ol’ Don dissed our salty protein pattie (I’m sure he did that as flippantly as he disses just about every other topic he speaks of, without actually meaning any of it…). The real insult here is how badly the general public needs something to focus on to take our minds off what’s really important! Terror, War, Poverty, Discrimination, Famine, …I could go on and [sadly] on. And as though to add insult to injury the commentators, political motor mouths and their ilk are spewing their breath over microphone heads, scrambling over each other in a heap, to toss in their own two cents worth.
Take for instance the comments of Mr. Davis, proclaimed leader of the Newfoundland & Labrador Peoples…regardless of whether your statements are well thought out or simply (I suspect) reactionary, you do not and cannot speak for me until you have been elected. Plain and simple. And in case you NDP and Liberals think I’m on your team, strike that one down as well. I’m as non-partisan as can be…but I believe in democracy.
In conclusion, Mr. Cherry is an entertainer with an extremely quick wit…and a motor mouth. Calm down people!
So, just a quick one...I am reminded every now and then that school bus regulations in NL do not require seatbelts (for whatever reasons...maybe good, maybe bad). I first started thinking about this when I had my own kids start travelling via school bus. Now they are nearing the end of their bussing but the concern still remains. Once or twice a year I see a news article similar to this one where a bus has had an accident and by luck or fate the cost has been minimal. My fear is that one time it will not be as good an outcome. Now, before everyone jumps on me to point out that it was not a school bus; I know that. That's not the point.
