Today is July 1st, which is Canada Day, Canada’s national holiday!
On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act was signed, uniting three colonies into one country under the British Empire and called it Canada. Canada’s been my home for nearly 40 years, and I’m now an importer of Canadian-ness in Florida (a.k.a. “Canada South”). From a Canadian expat to my Canadian friends and family all over the world, Happy Canada Day!
I’m making a last-minute flight to Boston to visit the GSG mothership for a “planning for the second half of the year” / “Hey, we’re doing stunningly well, let’s celebrate” meeting / party. My flight arrangement were last-minute, which means that the airline’s picking my seat. Wish me luck, and good luck if you’re in the same situation!
One would think Freedom of Intimacy is abridged rather than expanded by marriage. Ask the nearest hippie. Expression, sure enough, is a freedom, but anyone in a long-lasting marriage will attest that that happy state constricts, rather than expands, what one can prudently say.
It’s douchey to get in a cheap shot at your spouse in conversation. To do it in writing is serious douchebaggery. But to diss the Missus out of spite because now people you think of as inferior have to be treated like equals in a government document that will be preserved, discussed, and likely be cited in future legal arguments and law classes? That takes a doucheLORD.
You might think that the good judge may have some ‘splainin’ to do when he gets home tonight, but it’s more likely that he’ll just go all Cotton Hill and say “If you got more feelin’s to express, get in the kitchen and put ’em in a bundt cake.”

In the end, the only reason LinkedIn has stayed a social networking site for professionals is that its users treat it as such. There’s lots of room for funny (or attempting-to-be-funny) replies in discussions on LinkedIn, but once the trolling begins, we lose a valuable forum for making those connections that make business possible.
(And seriously, trolling the Cancer Society?Ballsy! Good luck!)
