Of all the Maclean’s issues in all the world . . .

They have to publish one of my web comments in their Morgentaler edition

This was my comment on a recent Maclean’s Health Blog item by Alexandra Shimo, on how sitting down can make you fat:

So THAT’s why federal Liberal MPs are looking a little flabby lately. Not standing up to vote in the commons.

Sorry, couldn’t resist.

My wisecrack (no pun intended) has been republished on page 4 of the July 21st issue of Maclean’s as “Reader Comment of the Week” -- the one with Order of Canada recipient Henry Morgentaler on the cover. Good for me, I guess.

The ironic thing about this is that I myself am sadly a few dress sizes past “flabby.” But I’m sure my former client, the Government House Leader, would appreciate that I was on message vis à vis the Liberals’ habit of sitting down for Canada.

Lol - short and sweet. Who would have thought that Liberals could make seat of the pants thinking an asset. :)

I am still hurt and resentful that my brilliant and insightful "Joke of the Day" in the G+M was pushed to an inside page by some nickle and dime amateur track meet. (the '04 Olympics)
