Enjoy live music and after hours access to the galleries every Friday night at Art After 5. Next Friday features legendary Philadelphia vocalist Valray Sturgis, who has assembled the city’s best talent to pay tribute to the likes of Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra.
Me and Stine randomly started singing “Not one of us” from The Lion King 2 and I burst out laughing as it literally is a perfect song for Solas/Solavellan at the end of Trespasser. So I did this! I hope this hasn’t been done yet!
Over the weekend, the Ottawa mayor blocked prominent Toronto Star columnist, radio host and civil rights advocate Desmond Cole from interacting with him on Twitter. According to the mayor, Cole had been “personally insulting” and engaged in “name calling.”
Cole described the allegations as “lies” on Twitter, arguing that the mayor was hoping no one would investigate his claims, and described Watson’s behaviour as “calculated and meant to deceive.”
According to a tweet from Cole, Watson blocked him at some point over the last several days. Cole also pointed out that his tweets are all public and anyone can review them.
Ricochet reviewed Cole’s Twitter timeline back to July 25, when news of Abdi’s death broke, and were unable to find any examples of personal insults or name calling. What we found was criticism of the mayor for remaining silent in the days following the shooting, and pointed criticism of how his city handles issues of racism and police violence. Cole’s tweets were within the bounds of fair comment, addressed to the substance of the mayor’s job performance and about as mean as pundits often are to mayors and legislators across this country.
In short, pointed criticism of politicians is in the job description for columnists and radio hosts like Cole.
Cole could bite through nearly anything, since his teeth has the strength to do so. Ever since his milk teeth had fallen out, his teeth were so strong he bit through a fork and accidentally swallowed it.
