Maybe It's Just Me

But I think you should go over to the National Post to read A modest proposal for curing a whiny nation. While I may not wish for a famine, nor do I believe Cate does, a little less whining wouldn't be bad now would it?

The efforts of the make-it-go-away community reach well beyond interference in efforts to extend health, life and productivity. They have evolved special branches devoted to the banishment of "things that bother people".

Strong perfume. Peanut butter sandwiches. Lawn chemicals. Scary looking dog breeds. Improper house colours.

To end these societal indignities, they declare, "There ought to be a law!"
