Whether it was form. . . or forn. . ., buddy has probably removed himself for consideration for the Order of Canada for several hundred years

Although he may still qualify for the as yet un-issued Queens Platinum Jubilee Medal...

These statues are bronze for the most part, aren't they?  A pretty good conductor of electricity if I recall?  The answer is a trip to the nearest farm supply for an electric fence box.  Smartens
up the dumbest of sheep and cows, should work fine on the drunken two legged cattle too.

Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

Would that cause birds landing on it to explode or something, or would it work like birds on a powerline?

Meanwhile, here's the "monumental" Ottawa police service news release ....

should be like birds to a power line.  Then again we might get a really cool lighting effect with electricity arcing off

It never ends, does it?

Now the Toronto Star reports that the Soldier’s Memorial Slype,* commemorating St. Michael’s alumni who fought in the World Wars and the Korean War, and which connects Queen’s Park to the quad at the college campus, was defaced by vandals last night.



So sad ...


_____
* slype
   noun, Architecture
   1. a covered passage, especially one from the transept of a cathedral to the chapter house.
It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.
Algernon Sidney in Discourses Concerning Government, (1698)

Someone has vandalized the cenotaph at Legion Memorial Park in Cornwall.

The culprit or culprits used dark green paint to scribe a scrawling set of initials across the date stamp, marking the time those who served in World War I, World War II and the Korean War.

It’s not clear when the vandalism took place but the act has drawn a furor from people on social media ...
