The world can be a pretty chaotic place. No surprise there, as disorder seems to be the norm. I don't lament that fact, as disorder can be pretty damn entertaining. To wit, Toronto's mayor, a guy known as Rob Ford, continues to stumble from one unpredictable life event to another. Last night, he apparently came charging out of his house and threatened a Toronto Star reporter who was trying to take pictures on public land (story here).
It somehow makes me glad I live in London. Not that our elected officials are much better, mind you - one of our city councillors, Stephen Orser, surreptitiously distributed a leaflet containing Nazi imagery to other members of council (story here). He opposes water fluoridation, and thought some good old Hitler-inspired imagery would help him make his point. Um, right.
My point, then, is we're surrounded by the unpredictable, including the behaviour of our elected officials. Who should know better, but don't. So it's nice to look up every once in a while and realize the buildings that define our cities are a little more orderly. At least that's how they seem on the surface.
Your turn: Do your elected officials embarrass you? How?
