The Last Injustice




That's it. I've had it. That's the last god damned injustice I'll have to suffer through.

Ha, ha, ha...literally.

Throughout November's 30 days, the folks over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com, or who I sometimes like to call Huggy Bloggers Not Calm - among other things, have been running with the theme of injustice.

30 days! A whole month! 1/12th of a year! You think we get the point? Okay, okay, there's a lot of injustice out there. And nobody cares enough to do anything about it. Except a bunch of snivelling, snot-nosed, punch-line deprived humour bloggers (hey, I'm Canadian. I spell humour with a "u". Get over it. Don't get me going on THAT injustice.).

So like a dutiful member of this comedic cabal I've been writing a couple of posts a week about various injustices.



For example, November 3rd, I took racism head-on.

A few days later, on November 6th, I did another little story on injustice. I think it really measured up.

Then on November 9th I talked about a variety of injustices including an ever-growing problem.

Then, November 10th I took aim at a particular injustice. But I really wanted to get into this topic. You might say I chose it by design.

A few days later, on November 17th, I was back at it again, ranting and raving with my finger on the pulse... of yet another injustice. That's right. ANOTHER injustice.

But wait. I didn't stop there. Nooooo. On November 19th I really contributed to my developing oeuvre and came up with a piece that was perfect as a picture.

I was still hungry to combat injustice November 20th and went quick to the task as I thought it was appropriate to continue to raise awareness.

And then finally, my musings on injustice came to a dramatic conclusion November 24th.

Or so I thought. Silly me. I didn't realize this week still had a day from November for the month to run it's course. After 8 posts over 4 weeks about injustice I had certainly had enough. But noooooo.

Damn it.

November isn't over.

Now THAT's an injustice.

Hopefully, the last injustice.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
