- Fri, 22:18: Why indeed? Is it blindness or bigotry? Why is killer of Brit MP Jo Cox not called a "terrorist"? https://t.co/9fuzZ1EjCS by @ggreenwald
- Sat, 00:09: It seems "the wogs (still) start at Calais". #CharlesStross shows me why so many friends think #Brexit is toxic. https://t.co/pYHBNdcBGJ

- Sat, 00:21: Cliff-hanger is cliff-hanger, but I really kind of hate Rachel now. Maybe a re-watch in order to tide us over? #OrphanBlack #CloneClub

2. You saw Shannon Gormley's column in the Citizen today
? She called the Cox murder what it was. That caused a certain amount of displeased satisfaction (contradiction as that state is) for me, at least.
3. Have read Stross' opinion at dduane
's Facebooked behest, and I don't think he's wrong. When Fascism came to Canada - and is still trying to make a home here, as it's been doing since before WW2 - it came swaddled in the Red Ensign and the Fleurdelisé.Edited at 2016-06-18 11:35 pm (UTC)

Thanks for the Gormley
I hadn't read the Gormley column until you pointed it out to me. A good analysis, thanks.
And Stross taught me some things that a friend on Facebook hadn't quite managed to make clear.
