    I have received one comment from an anonymous reader, expressing surprise at my use of the word retarded . Regular readers know I don't normally stoop to such language. However, I use it here to make a point about how the level of public discourse has been reduced and cheapened by this premier's continuous verbal attacks on individuals and organizations. As noted above, Williams is the most insolent premier in our province's history. And if he can do it, why can't the rest of us? No, he hasn't used the word retarded , but he has called into question the intelligence of MHA Wade Verge with his pfft remark. Any citizen of this province can easily come up with three examples of where the premier went over the top in slagging others, and you know what? I think that is an intolerable situation.

    Also, anyone who thinks this government's about-face on Flower's Cove has nothing to do with the by-election is... well, let's just say they have serious mental health issues.
