I met Trevor Taylor when he was a fisherman and long before he entered politics.
Over the years, I have been very impressed with his grasp and steadily improving articulation on complicated subject matter.
I get it that he is at least as proud of his outharbour skills with fishing lines and chalk lines as he is with those less macho ones required in the practice of arts and letters pursuits.
However, he is clearly out of his depth by reacting in such a vain and puerile fashion to critical comments of his column made by Russell Wangersky in a recent Telegram post.
In regards to critical observation skills, diligent research and telling it like it is, sans political spin, it is Taylor and not Wangersky who is far from port and fishing in unproductive waters.
Being a newspaper columnist is not a place for someone with a thin skin or who believes in his own divinity.
John Crosbie should also take note.
