TEA & TWO SLICES: On Bacon Hate Crimes And Replacing Theatres With More Condos
by Sean Orr | Bro who is pre-occupied with abortion tells us that we are pre-occupied with abortion, and if you dont agree you are basically a fascist.
Dear anyone ever who has called me “angry” or sighed when I started talking, like “oh, here goes Sean Orr again”: Rick Mercer: Why I rant. And why you should too. “Everyone should rant. Ranting not only makes you feel better but occasionally, as my mother proved to me many times, you might get results— justice, satisfaction or a fudge stick”. Or in my case, the ultimate praise and respect of my peers and community. *chortle
I guess the only drawback with ranting is that even really dumb people are allowed to do it: Control Cyclists. What I would pay to live in a world of total self-absorption and naivety!
Leading to…the tweet of the day c/o Kevin Quinlan (City Hall’s Director of Policy and Communications): “Part of reverse psychological war on the car: Cost to park in downtown Vancouver decreased in the past year”.
Bacon Mosque Vandalism Investigated As Hate Crime. There is a bacon mosque? No, but seriously, this is just a huge insult — to bacon lovers. What a waste! And during a worldwide bacon shortage to boot!
Food as ideological threat: Toronto Destroys an #OccupyGardens Free Food Garden Days Before Harvest. I’m just trying to picture this happening in, say…Strathcona. Oh, the whirlwind they would reap!
The Future of Vancouver’s Farmland. OK, if this is what farmers look like nowadays I’m am totally in! Sign me up and let’s get pickin’!
And in the entertainment section…Vancouver park board converts seven more vacant field houses to artists’ studios. Hmm, I almost get the sense the Vancouver Sun is scoffing at the idea.
Old Navy to open up at Robson and Granville. So our transition from quaint home-grown fishing village into anonymous America-town is almost complete! Bring on the Bon Marche! Bring on the Old Country Buffet!
Now with comics: The Ridge theatre replaced by condos. Yes, condos.
