Lead With Your Chin

Editorial cartoonists had a field day last week. Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was appearing before a public inquiry into his post-PM business dealings with a German businessman during which Mr. Mulroney received large sums of cash in plain brown envelopes on three occasions. He never admitted to the payments and never payed tax on this income, until something like 5 years later. On one morning of his testimony he was up against the televised proceedings of a Parliamentary Committee reviewing the cicumstances surrounding a Liberal MP's (a very attractive one) possibly employing illegal immigrants as her mother's caregiver. When repeatedly asked why he never admitted to these payments in the past, Mulroney said, "No one asked me the question."

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
