Can We Talk?

Mayor Rob Ford

We don’t live in Toronto anymore. Still, we watch the news from Toronto. After all, we don’t live that far away and we’re somewhat interested in what is going on. So, it greaves me to watch and hear all the negative stuff reported by the media about probably the best mayor they’ve ever had – at least in recent memory.

He’s not being judged on his work. Oh no. He’s being judged on his off-time activities. Granted, smoking crack is not a good thing. I’m not sure what crack is but I just don’t like the sound of it. Crack. Sounds like a fire-cracker going off in my mouth.

Being held to a higher standard is a lot of bunk. What it says is, it’s OK for the rest of you to live your lives as you see fit but not for him. He’s being held to a higher standard. I wish some of the reporters were held to a higher standard. Their reporting is of the rag sheets standard like the Mirror and Enquirer.

Now, we all know it’s all about selling ads.  Without ads, the paper or station or website would not be in around for very long. So, they are obliged to sensationalize it as much as possible so that viewers/readers living boring lives can tell themselves they are so much more virtuous.

Give the guy a break and leave him alone.
