Bland on Bland: Ontario Re-Elects Bill Davis
“I must ask Mr Lougheed…who was this Jimmy Hoffa and why do imagine he’s interred here in Canmore?”
“Do you say ‘Tim Hortons’ because that gentleman will live here?”
I’m assuming you’re aware of this, but just in case you missed it and I get to be the first with the news, I noticed whilst reading William Deverell’s latest potboiler* last night that your organ has been immortalized in fiction.
The author (who obviously never worked as a newswriter) was using the old series-of-imaginary-news-articles dodge to hurry the rather turgid action along. Among the fake Ottawa Citizen, fake Globe and Mail, and fake Toronto Star reports was one from fake Frank Magazine. Mr. Deverell hadn’t really captured your inimitable style, but I think you can accept it as a tribute nonetheless.
ICYMI, as they say on the interwebs, it’s on Page 192 of Whipped, by the aforementioned Wm Deverell, 103.
* Not thick enough to be a doorstopper
