Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

Throwing eggs

Methinks a journalist's chip on his shoulder might be getting a wee bit big when he starts getting into the business of essentially calling the prime minister a liar.

The cliché that there are always two sides to every story almost always rings true when it comes to public policy. I hardly think the Accountability Act is exempt from that rule. For every five people that think it creates secrecy, there might be just as much who don't. The prime minister has probably been advised by people who genuinely believe in the latter.

Yet, if you listen to Greg Weston, those that disagree with him are basically a bunch of liars. The cause of productive political discourse doesn't seem to be high on Mr. Weston's list. Then again, nothing seems to be except throwing eggs at government regardless of who's in power.
