In a round of cut-backs at Sun Media (see here), I saw that a great writer and the classiest journo I’ve run across, Lorrie Goldstein, was let go.
I have had many contacts with Lorrie on-line and have found him to be incredibly fair, open-minded and willing to engage in the most respectful way so I was personally sad to see him lose his job but also because it is a loss for Canadian journalism. Then I got mad after seeing Warren Kinsella was still employed.
To which Kinsella, revelling in it, wished a few of us who were not impressed this:
@kinsellawarren: @mooseandskwerl @pottypol59 @bcbluecon I hope it gives all of you a strike.
What Kinsella meant to write was that he hoped we had a ‘stroke’ and when confronted by blogger Alberta Ardvark, quickly deleted the tweet replacing it with “palpitations”.
Classy as well as hilarious right?
