    Wakeham, you're not going to make it now,or ever, as a real recognized journalist. I am not an over-zealous fan of the premier!!!But the tripe that you write encourages me to believe that we have a premier never had before, never will have again for a long, long time.Rest your thoughts!!!

    @Harvey Jackman, et al;

    If you don't like the column, don't read it.

    Do you watch TV shows you don't like or listen to music you hate?

    I didn't think so.

    While some of the younger journalists have what it takes, only two of Newfoundland and Labrador's finest journalists, both from the old school, have had the courage to really speak truth to power. One was the great Ray Guy and the other was the just as great, Bob Wakeham. Keep up the good work, Bob!

    Yes I heard that patheic, can't say it was a speech, in the house. They talk about, using a hockey analogy, how good their first line is compared to their seventh?!@#$ I'd like to see his buddies study company recommendations on that one. They have enough for at least 2 hockey teams and still can't win the cup, even being unaccountable. That persons role on his team, Id say, Is no more than a WATER BOY. Thats right.
    What happened to all these out spoken people who would have a voice and fix some of the problems for their districts. I know, They fell in line and are keeping their mouths shut. The only time we hear from them now, like on fridays radio show, is when the popularity contest for danny is about to close. The thing is, why do we even know when these contests are being run, its sorta like insider trading if you ask me, and ye did. Yes sir, the mha's have all but been slienced and have take up the pompoms to replace their voice. and, I wouldn't expect a text either.

    That display of propaganda was amazing and uncalled for by that PC MHA. He comfirmed how I voting next election. Its almost as unthought out as moving the air ambulance from St. Ant-en-E. Then we hear on commericals that we spend more money per capita than any other province for our healthcare. I hope they aren't using the same study company who said it was cool to move the air ambulance. If that is the case then what are we doing wrong, spending all that money in the wrong places. Are we being penitized because so many people actually try and use these services, dispite the amount of effort to detour people. This government has missed the most important piece of the whole Exercise. Danny said, about his heart condition, that it was his body, his choice and his money. I'd say to him, about my healthcare, that is my body, my choice but you guys have all OUR money. So I /we can't fly away some where warm and recouperate. I know one thing we aren't short on is lawyers and cops. And I rather pay a doctor for help then a lawyer who's only tring to make you thing they helped you. When in essence, they only helped themselves. But we all know what reaction would come from this fact. But I say nothing, and I means NOTHING, could be Closer to the TRuTH! Frankly.

    The more they protest about it, the more you know they read it. Example: Danny slags the Globe and Mail every chance he gets. The rest of the time, he QUOTES from it.

    Good Lord! Man, you're flirting, either foolishly or courageously, with hellfire and eternal damnation. Sure, we can smell the brimstone way up here in Labrador....
