I Love My Sunday Funnies

Sunday mornings are my newspaper reading time -- even though news reading kicks off my day every morning.

Longtime U.S. senator John McCain died yesterday and the news hit hard. For some reason a certain Toronto-based newspaper refuses to cover his passing front and centre on its website.

The missing news was obvious. Even I was not looking for trouble.

Of course the Toronto Sun won't mention John McCain: the fearless man turned against and frequently called-out President Donald Trump, whom the fine folk at the Sun love.

A few weeks ago the Sun gave no ink to the issue of Ontario Conservatives "clapping out" reporters' questions. Can you imagine if Liberal or NDP members did that? We'd never hear the end of it.

The motto at the Toronto Sun: "Whatever's Convenient."

I love my Sunday funnies.

I don't mind a-holes as much if they're informed ones.

Therein lies the problem.

Hurray for buck-a-beer! Ontario's new conservative slogan : MODA - Make Ontario Drunk Again!Looks like there's Donald Trumps popping up all over the world and we have our own version. When's the next election??

Doug Ford is quite progressive; and an intellectual.
