They’d never hire us, but they don’t mind mooching stuff from our blogs, uncredited.
A letter of complaint to Alok Mukherjee, chairman of the Toronto Police Services Board, says the CJC is “frankly mystified,” not just because “shiksa” is “sometimes used as a pejorative” and is therefore “inappropriate” for an official police category, but because hate crime sentencing provisions were meant to reflect not just simple membership in a group, but an “unchangeable” or “inescapable” aspect of the victim.
People who insist that bloggers are simply parasites on newspapers don’t realize it is often the other way around…

I love it when those who’ve swallowed the “victim group” Kool Aid endeavour to work their way out of the fine mess their philosophy has gotten them–and us–into. (…) what about Trekkers, fashionistas, bowlers and fans of the 7/11 Big Gulp? They can be “victims,” too, you know.
