In fact, it was precisely this suggestion that drew yours truly into the blogosphere in the first place. After that shameful display of shitkicking, curbstomping, kettling, gang-rape threatening, prosthetic-leg-stealing, horse-trampling, tear-gassing and rubber-bullet-shooting by the cops, it's not hard to imagine that a lot of people are going to think twice about taking to the streets.
And wouldn't that be convenient for Stephen Harper, Dalton McGuinty and their corporate string-pullers.
In fact, just this morning, yours truly almost got pulled into an exchange on the Tweeter centred on the whole "you should have stayed home" argument.
Mea culpa. There are times when facing that sort of thing is almost enough to pull me out of the snide, condescending, snarky persona I usually affect, and into stuttering, spittle-flecked rage. And that isn't helping anyone or anything. Apologies all round.
