The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

This doesn't sound like a major upper, but maybe good.

Encouraging news from Frozen Canuckland

Mark Steyn:
The giant killer worms of the Canadian "Human Rights" Commission picked the wrong rec room to break into. Ezra Levant and I and a few others...gave them the worst year of publicity in their three-decade existence. The result is that, earlier this month, over 99 per cent of delegates to the Conservative Party convention voted to abolish Section 13 (the "hate speech" provision) of the Canadian Human Rights Act, and a brave principled Liberal, Keith Martin, renewed his private member's motion in the House of Commons to do the same.

This morning, the CHRC issued the so-called Moon Report on free-speech issues. Most of us expected it to be a whitewash. Instead, Professor Moon says:

1. The first recommendation is that section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act (CHRA) be repealed so that the CHRC and the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) would no longer deal with hate speech, in particular hate speech on the Internet.
Hope spring internal, or something like that.

Death to Hate Speech laws!

60? Sixty per cent? SIXTY PER CENT???

GenderAnalyzer sez about our Hero's blog:
We think is written by a woman (60%).
At least I'm the kinda woman I like, tho:
The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.
...or as SPED teachers. Pretty much the same hazards as cops and firechicks.

Of a certain other blog of renown, the swine sez:
We have strong indicators that is written by a man (96%).
Chee wiz.
