    "the pitchforks don't come out for men who hurt women, but for the women who have the courage to speak their truths"
    ...
  2. I've updated the title as more information is...

    I've updated the title as more information is forthcoming: "Crikey, Jian" seems too flippant, now.
  3. I think you're right, Willy VW. There's...

    I think you're right, Willy VW. There's something about the calculated assaults on women by a man who is very successful, smart, and enticingly charming that's beginning to remind me of the Russell...
  4. Plus, he seems to have come across as utterly...

    Plus, he seems to have come across as utterly charming, beguiling, flattering - rather sociopathic behaviour, I think, given the wanton brutality that then ensued: all designed as part of the...

    And with stuff like this, it's beginning to seem that, thank goodness he was stopped now, before his predilections became even more depraved.

    Oh, my goodness, I really had no idea. How terribly sad. Thanks, ts.

    May I just ask, what does TRIGGER WARNING mean?

    And....wouldn't that be nine women, now, including the one who wrote about her date with "Kevin" last year - ?
  8. And the conceit of the man, to have thought that,...

    And the conceit of the man, to have thought that, by pre-empting the fallout with his lengthy side* of the story on FB, no-one could possibly believe all these women. I would hope that the people,...
  9. Good grief, that is absolutely horrific. That...

    Good grief, that is absolutely horrific. That poor woman. And the other one they mentioned at the end of the interview. Good for CBC Radio for not ignoring this one: it must be very difficult to...

    The "nice" thing....some of the people who seem the nicest are actually the very worst when you get to know them a bit. They'll tell you about their "faults" early on, so when things spiral downhill...

    I have a pair of those Bogs - the ones with the kiddie handles, and I love them. They're not as heavy to lug around as Muck boots, and they're a little bit shorter, so somehow much easier to pull on...

    I just thought of something else: are all your car's windows completely closed? Could one of them be open the tiniest smidge, just enough to let a whistle through that would be ear-piercingly...

    Have the vet check his hearing and his eyesight, perhaps?
  14. Thank you all for describing today's funeral...

    Thank you all for describing today's funeral service - no tv here. It sounds like the city of Hamilton, and the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders of Canada, did Cpl Cirillo and his family proud.

    I had never heard of Owen Pallett, but good for him for so bluntly taking a stand, I think...

    I'm not a vet, but when one of our cats became elderly, he got to eat whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted, and a variety of canned food in separate dishes was his choice. I groomed him gently,...

    Another great link, Fred - thanks. Embedded in it was this one, too, written over a year ago (so pre this week's mess), and very informative on details (it does warn that it's a bit graphic):
    ...
  18. Thanks for that link - a balanced, more grown-up,...

    Thanks for that link - a balanced, more grown-up, perspective than much of the sputtering I've read.

    It's ironic that every luvvie and her hubby wiggled and giggled over "50 Shades of Grey" - the...
  19. I hope your "spidey sense" is wrong, but it's...

    I hope your "spidey sense" is wrong, but it's unsettling how, after facts come out and pervs are exposed, we often realize we just weren't listening to our spidey senses.

    I "grew up" with Jimmy...

    I just re-listened to his commentary the morning after the murder of Nathan Cirillo. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's hard not to read a little Machiavellian double-speak in his words, now.
  21. YUCK. So many people who are public figures have...

    YUCK. So many people who are public figures have particularly unsavoury clay feet, don't they. It's as if fame and power makes them feel they have the right to behave badly, sometimes VERY badly...
  22. Jian Ghomeshi: pop star, radio host, serial beater of women

    Apparently, Jian Ghomeshi is out of the CBC:

    And more detail:

    A lot of them might come out in a long hot soapy wash - the heat cooks the seeds - burrs - and softens them enough that they slough out as the machine tumbles through the cycle.

    @ Foxtrot's - all my comments in that post were reflections on a combination of what is available through the news media: mostly on CBC's website, heard on Ottawa CBC radio (the woman with whiter...

    I'm not a big fan of PM Harper: I'm appalled at the cutbacks he's instituted in science, or archives, for instance, and I do hope he is (made) aware of the irony of recently letting the contract for...
