Somebody brought a Saturday Globe up to the lake, and because it was right there on the dock, I read the “Dhimmi” Doug Saunders article on Islam. It was predictable. He was scared of Muslims at first, too, but he got over it. Unlike some people. When I got back to town and Internet access, I noticed that, as far as I can tell, nobody in the online circles I frequent – here, Blogging Tories, the incomparable Shaidle and some others – took the least bit of notice. Hence my question. Nobody reads the Globe or, if they do, they cannot be moved to comment? I find that interesting, either way, but maybe I shouldn’t be surprised. I only read Globe items when they deal with my narrow professional interests and, having done so, feel I have done a duty. So, am I to conclude that the Globe is incorrigible, hence unreadable? As of Monday evening, the Saunders article had attracted almost 3500 comments, which is a pretty good score, most seem to take exception with Saunders’ whitewashing of the problem and many of them sufficiently pungent to be censored away, so some people are reading, if only online and gratis. So, is the Globe and Mail completely irrelevant? Not even worth keeping an eye on?
