Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Those Profane Twitter Goofs

1/1 Earlier I retweeted a post re carb tax w/ a profane hashtag ref the PM that I simply didn't initially see. Minutes later it was deleted. — Brad Wall (@PremierBradWall) January 4, 2017 2/2 I should have been more careful and apologize. No doubt the debate on the carbon tax will be lively but ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Too Bold A Halloween Costume

The University of Regina has quite a few exchange students. They pay more than a bit to study here in Canada too. One picked a stereotype to make fun of at Halloween, and ended up with more role playing than he bargained on. This is the sort of over-sensitive reaction that we should be concerned ...

Scripturient: I missed my calling in quackery

I missed my calling. I realize that, now I am semi-retired and counting my pennies. But I could have been like Deepak Chopra: rolling in dough, had I been astute enough to see the trends. Too late, I suppose, for me, but maybe not for you. All my life I have criticized and lampooned New Age ...

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: We Hear #carbontax Won’t Work But It Will Change Behaviour

Coyne has a point: .@acoyne @ZackSiezmagraff Yes, exactly.

Scripturient: 13 Ways to Kill Collingwood

I found it! I stumbled across the secret manifesto The Block is using to destroy Collingwood. It’s in a book called “13 Ways to Kill Your Community” (Frontenac House, 2010) by Doug Griffiths and Kelley Clemmer. And pretty much everything in it outlines The Block’s not-so-secret plan to turn this community into rubbish. I know, ...

Scripturient: Dilbert, Dogbert and Collingwood

I’ve often commented that the cartoon strip Dilbert, by Scott Adams, is closer to a documentary than it is to a cartoon. Not just about the quagmire of corporate life: Dilbert applies equally to the sodden bureaucracy of government. And here are some strips to prove my hypothesis, at least on the local level. I culled ...

Scripturient: What did the former council ever do for us?

TIM: What exactly are the demands? BRIAN: We’re giving Powerstream two days to dismantle the entire apparatus of the Collus utility, and if they don’t agree immediately, we execute the shotgun clause.
