Short Cuts From The Darkside

In spite of my limited time due to work, I'd like to toss in a few rants for this week. Discuss...
  1. Whither the Krystal Nation? As much as I don't care less for the guy, Andrew Krystal has done a bang-up job here in Halifax at News 95.7. Never mind that he succeded in pissing of loads of sensible people (remember the Adler incident in the last Erection? sure you do!) - Mr. Krystal had injected a little bit of life in the ususally moribund Maritime radio scene.
    But last Friday, the Lord of the Krystal entity went in front of a judge charged with violating a condition related to an arrest for assault a few weeks ago. On the front of Saturday's Chronicle-Herald, the Krystal King was politely led away by a member of the local constabulary, just to make sure he didn't start leading an impromptu intifada against accusatory infidels.
    Of course, it all had to do with booze, and an excess of a good thing could lead to bad brushes with the legal system. Whether Mr. Krystal could weather such a hit is pure speculation, but insane eccentric bloviators have an unusual talent for rebounding, especially in some unusual places (ie T-dot to Hali - go fig!), and soon the Krystal Nation will be rebuilt, give or take a month or few.
    Chin up, you Knucklehead.
  2. Do Unto Others Before They Do Unto You! We all know that Stephen Harper is always working hard to make his minority government work. We also know that the Lie-berals are working hard to win the next election.
    But why wait for Stephane Dion to play the diva card when you have the means to fire the first volley? Steve-O and the boys have cooked up a trio of missives to remind the un-CĂ©line that he's still a Grit leader who hadn't done much to deliver the barest minimum, especially when it came to the environment.
    Smell anything burning? That will be today's question period.
  3. Bill O'Reilly Is Starting To Make More Sense To Me Than I Thought! A couple of weeks ago I bought Billy's "Culture Warrior" at the nearest Chapters at Mic Mac Mall. It wasn't cheap, and for a while I pondered whether or not the money could've been better spent on a vacuum cleaner or groceries.
    To make a long story short, it was a good read. In fact, this is, so-far, the best book written about Canada and the way we were being complacent in our Liberal ways.
    There's nothing wrong with being a progressive society. But when you do it at the expense of the traditional values that shape it, you ruin a good thing.
    Although I disagree with Billy with respect to health care (come live with us somtime, sir), stories of social re-engineering through schools and media are old hat: the book shows the extent to which experimentation has taken place.
    Buy the freakin' book. Now.
  4. A Short Take On The Seal Hunt. There is one thing that I don't like about the seal hunt.
    It has nothing to do with the inhumane methods of harvest.
    It's all about leaving behind all this valuble meat on the ice.
    Think about it.

That's all for now. Have a Week.
