PC Party of Ontario officially dead

And, of course, no more astrophysics, as the term "black hole" has now been officially erased from the lexicon...
-- TORONTO -- Ontario Progressive Conservatives have issued an apology for calling the Liberal Scarborough subway plan a “train wreck” on the same day that at least six people died in a bus-train crash in Ottawa.
It's official... when you start to fall over yourselves about politically correct silliness like this, it's time to disband the whole effete organisation.

I just about threw up when I heard Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson sombrely announcing that the whole city was in mourning for these people... even before bodies had been pulled from the wreckage. It ranks right up there with politicians pulling on various articles of religious apparel to suck up to whatever religious institution they are visiting that day.

It doesn't actually fool anyone, does it?


UPDATE: It can't actually be grief...

...I guess it's just a way to advertise your moral superiority...
Lining both sides of the tracks, the derailed Via train serving as a backdrop, supporters lit candles, hugged each other and prayed for the six killed and more than 30 injured when the double-decker OC Transpo bus struck the train.

Most of those in attendance didn't know anyone on the ill-fated bus, but were in shock that something so tragic could happen so close to home.
And you get to see yourself on TV.
