Operation: Stop Ward 31 News UPDATE #9


I realize that it's been quite a while since my last update on the Stop Ward 31 News crusade. There isn't too much news to relay. I've been in touch with some local politicians who are being very supportive and with the BIA in the neighbourhood who I hope will get word out to potential advertisers that this so called "newspaper" is not the place to spend their advertising dollars. I have had ZERO response from any of Mr. St. Germaine's readership on his attack of me in the last issue. It makes me wonder who's read it? The truth is, this project is a marathon and not a sprint.

It's also true that my pace has slowed somewhat on this cause considering everything I've had to do in the last little while like wrapping up work for a year and preparing the house for Art Vandelay's imminent arrival. In a related story, do you realize it's impossible to find a pair of disposable diapers for sale that hasn't been branded by the Disney Corporation? Gross. The Robeau points out that if I find this practice so distasteful I should just keep in mind that the kid will be defecating all over the mouse so I should be pleased. I don't hate everything Disney turns out (don't worry, there's not another boycott in this blog's future) in fact, I appreciate and admire a lot of it. I'd go so far as to say I LOVE some of it. It's just the...omnipresence of the branding, the STUFF, and those damn Princesses. Maybe I should train the baby to poop on back issues of the Ward 31 News?

  2. Ahahaaha!

    (Note to my readers: you had to be there)

  3. Honestly, those princesses rock, they would definitely be on your team! Have you considered cloth diapers, it's an option?

  4. The cloth diapers are worse...they have horrible hippy trippy rainbow patterns all over them. Ick. Also? Waaaaay too lazy for cloth diapers. And the environmental impact, once you factor in washing and bleach and stuff is six of one, half a dozen of the other.

    Re: The Princesses, I would take them all individually, it's the way they're marketed as a group. It's just wrong. Can't convince me otherwise. It's cheap and shameless and it reduces the original stories, which are legit works of art to nothing more than a vehicle for merchandise. Gross.

    My kingdom for a plain white diaper.

  5. Pampers are Sesame Street, which is better than Mickey.

    Also, disposables can go in your green bin! Gooooo compost!
