I agree with Ms. Morgan that Ray Guy is a great satirist. But " the darkest days " and " the irrational, and ultimately tragic drama taking place in our House of Assembly " ???-----Ray would have great fun with this. He'd remind her that she seems to have confused the Williams/Dunderdale regimes with Smallwoods. Remember Ray on Churchill Falls? Imagine the satirical heights he could reach with Muskrat Falls. Was Smallwood dictatorial? yes, and Ray never let him forget it. Its too bad he was semi-retired and not writing regularly for the Telegram when Danny, the great consensus builder, was in his heyday. Was Smallwood's regime undemocratic and secretive. How about Bill 29? Yes, the more things change.........Mr. Smallwood and most of the politicians of his era have passed on. I am wondering why Ms. Morgan had nothing to say about the living and breathing political leaders of today.........Oh, but they are squeaky clean---not like that ogre Smallwood, right?-------yeah, right

Ray Guy - truly an example of the pen being mightier than the sword.

Thank you, Bernice! Your sentiments echo those of many of us who saw Ray's epistles as a crack in the foundation of the prevailing establishment. Our society could use a few more tilters-at-windmills. Get back on Rosinante, Ray, and give us one more example of how it's done!
