October 7 roundup


  • It never ceases to amaze and amuse me how accurate “Yes Minister” was… and how it proves that some things never change. The third episode, “The Economy Drive” revolved around cutting government spending where a time and motion study of the department involved hiring 500 more people and spending millions more to come to the conclusion that they could probably get rid of a tea lady or two.

  • The recent spate of outrageous claims of immunity by police officers make me think that we now have police who have less of a sense of shame and professionalism than hockey enforcers. That is not good.

  • Since the last true hockey enforcers (can’t skate but is there solely to punch) has gone the way of the dodo, one can hope the same for officers who behave outrageously and look to immunity to cover their poor actions.
