This morning, like most mornings , I was shaving in the bathroom. I have a small radio. As I was shaving I just reached down with my left hand , shaving blade in my right hand , and turned it on . CBC news .
‘The first of the victims of last week’ s California tragedy are being buried today . ————The victims were killed by an ‘armed couple.’
My right hand came down fast just missing my chin and the razor crashed against the side of the sink.
‘What’s that , I shouted, an armed couple? An armed couple !This is crazy!’
My wife called out. ‘Are you alright ?’
‘I don’t know ‘, I exclaimed .
I ran downstairs to the kitchen . ‘Do you know what I just heard on the radio? ‘, I shouted.
‘What , what ‘, my wife excitedly asked .?
‘ The news is describing those Radical Islamic Terrorists who killed those fourteen in San Bernardino as ‘an armed couple ! Can you believe that ? This political correctness is just gone wild.’
‘ Look , Brian, I keep telling you to , you must not listen to CBC in the morning when you are shaving . Its a dangerous business,’ my wife explained.
Lesson finally learned.
