I guess they really didn't get...

...the unit... on bedside manner...

-- TORONTO -- A postgraduate medical resident and a family physician were arrested Friday for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting a 23-year-old woman at a downtown hotel.

The victim met with the two men at a hotel bar on Queen St. W. and University Ave. Sunday, police said. The men said they would provide her with career advice.

UPDATE: Take two roofies and...

...call me in the morning...
"When the bail hearing finally got underway at Old City Hall at 2:35 p.m. — 4 1/2 hours after proceedings began in two case-crowded courtrooms — a Crown attorney successfully sought an adjournment based on police advising her that 'another complainant' had contacted police."

Why, oh why did I bloody well know what they looked like before I saw the pictures?

actually, pat... saying that you knew before you saw their pictures... well, that's prejudice pure & simple.

you just can't say stuff like that without some sort of statistical... wait a minute...

a caveat here, guys... i've had personal dealings with a prominent muslim businessman (yes, even here in hastings cty, they do exist) and he has been extremely capable, professional, fair-minded and even westernised.

he has become a fully-fledged canadian and i have respect for him both personally & professionally. he would no more break the law than jump off a bridge.

in fact, the biggest knock i have ever heard anyone give him... is that he spends too much time on the golf course.

judge a person on the facts and credible evidence... that's the difference between prejudice and post-judice. similarly, be careful not to apply that judgement willy-nilly to his family, religious fellows or countrymen.

stereotypes do come from somewhere... and many are valid... but it's not an unviolable law of the universe.

remember also to be careful of those who choose to mindlessly embrace the opposite extreme... the headlong pursuit of suckass political correctness.

use your brain... not your emotions.

finally... remember to live behind your own eyes... it may be the most important lesson i've passed on to my own son.
