  1. He’s courageous to say that… and he’s right. Though I doubt he’s going to be widely appreciated for that.
    He might not be cute, but ever since watching his “Religulous” I’ve been a fan ;)

    • He has an acid tongue, which is why his appeal isn’t more widespread, I think. A lot of people consider him “self-satisfied” or “critical of everyone”; but I, too, am a fan, Kat. One can see WHY he’s so critical !

  2. Whoever writes his segments is a genius. So grateful to you for bringing it to my attention. It needs to be widely shared! (No pun intended!)

  3. Only Maher would dare to say anything even faintly negative about Fauci, imnsho. But the fact is that the entire medical fraternity – in terms of those who can reach The People – is mute on obesity with regard to Covid-19. Hélas !, eh, Patrick ? This sure hit home with me. :(


    • I wish I could click LIKE on your reply (because I’m lazy), but find I can’t, I’m afraid. To be able to do that, WordPress is asking me to jump through half a dozen hoops for which I need to remember passwords I’ve long forgotten. From now on, just assume I like and approve of everything you write, ok?

      Changing the subject COMPLETELY (sorry!): I would love to read your thoughts (perhaps in a short post here on your blog) about what you think of some of the new rules contained in the 2020 “Australian Style Manual”. See here: https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/aug/01/out-of-control-australia-has-a-new-style-manual-but-not-everyone-is-happy

      Grosses bises,

      • Well, I don’t know about M-R, but I’m fascinated by this new Style manual. I LOVE The style manual – or, at least I did when I worked. My colleague and I established standards for writing summaries of audiovisual content in a database, and what was originally called the Commonwealth Style Manual was a major resource for us, including the rules about when to use numerals and when words for numbers. The WHOLE database will be thrown out by the change to using numerals for 2 and above!! LOL. I think though that it’s probably a good idea. As for the spaced en versus unspaced em dash, I say bring it on.

  4. The trouble for me with it, Sue, was that it reminded me there isn’t and never will be any such publication with which everyone agrees. Like the bloody Macquarie dictionary; which I detested for many reasons but primarily its willingness to accommodate apparently (a word that looks a lot better with two ‘p’s rather than three ..) any vile popular utterance. I have always been a horrible mishmash of carelessness and detail, as you see. [grin]


Go on - you can say it. :)
