Reading the back issues at Crusader, I came across this beautiful January 26 letter by Rick Mercer in The Independent, in response to some snot of a professor, Noreen Golfman, belittling our troops and the Afghanistan mission. It's such an honest (if sarcastic) intervention in the (self) hate speech of our leftist elites in the universities and media that it almost makes me want to check out Mercer's CBC again. The amazing thing about the letter comes with just reflecting on what we have become as a non-nation of white guilters that such a letter can be needed and even conceived in the first place. And why is it Newfies - I'm thinking also of Rex Murphy - who are seemingly more often immune to the guilt trip than others at the taxpayer-owned broadcaster? Coincidence?
