MayorVij Presents: Rob Ford crack scandal: Toronto mayor calls it ‘ridiculous’ but doesn’t issue denial
IMHO, in the media and often reflected on the streets, so much of what we all discuss these days is more about how we spin the take on a topic well than anything else we say. This idea seems to apply when it comes to thinking about making the appropriate comment at the appropriate time to the appropriate parties on the Mayor Rob Ford crack smoking scandal. Or, "Crack Rob" getting caught and many mainstream reporters claiming to have verified a video of it; among other scandals. This looks bad.
Of course, being conservative in your comments after a breaking scandal involving an important political figure or anyone really is to be expected from anyone, especially when it comes to the media questioning other political figures and looking for salacious details to hype. However, when normal people do this in normal conversations it often forces people to try to compete to get more credit for making the obvious sound profound. This is hard to do, give and get. Or it's boring and feels so. This feels worse.
People should definitely try to use humour to resist the thoughtless, banal, friction-less, paranoid and boring politically correct kennel that many in power appear to want to casually herd us into, including the fake left vs. right political paradigm among others that prevent us from thinking differently to decode them. While everybody is innocent until proven guilty, when there's cause for investigation because the evidence is adding up, perhaps it's normal to question why there isn't a speedy end to the process in sight. This feels better.
That'll do for now. I'd still love to get back to work on my WYWTBI Project to finish it for this summer too.
Check it out. It's been shelved for a bit, but it's on my mind since I know it's on many, many others as well...
It's Nice To Meet You
