Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Sound Off -- Jan. 29, 2014

I don’t want to read about that

I am very disappointed with the Brandon Sun publishing a story about sex toys and games at the university. Yes, I realize these things happen and it is a part of life, but I really don’t think that needed to be published in the Brandon Sun.

Wasting our money on sinful activities

Thank you Brandon Sun for showing the world exactly what goes on at our university in Brandon. To think valuable educational resources are being used to corrupt the minds of our impressionable youth for some trash called Erotic Bingo. Tax dollars paid for that building and my hard-earned money went into that sinful evening as students — my child being one of them, who wasn’t at that sex game — pay fees for that pub to be open through the students’ union. I don’t want my child or my money to have anything to do with such debasing activities. Why is there a bar on the campus in the first place?

Right on James!

It’s so refreshing to see a writer have the guts to say what’s on most people’s minds — since most people are afraid to speak the truth in this day and age! Last Saturday in his column (Editor’s Notebook), the Sun’s managing editor took a swipe at both NDP Health Minister Erin Selby (“former TV news cutie”) and at Tory Opposition Leader Brian Pallister (“a clown in a nice suit”). Sure, he could have spent endless paragraphs citing policy positions or statements from Hansard from sessions in the Manitoba legislature. But he paints vivid pictures of the political characters that even the most casual of political observers can understand and enjoy. Also thanks to the Sun for providing this Sound Off feature so I can anonymously express my support for your editor’s brash, but brilliant way of expressing himself without getting myself fired.
