Colby Cosh writes red meat for those of us on an all-protein political punditry diet. So when he announced his output at the National Post was being scaled back to once column per week, I was left with an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach.
Why has the otherwise sane Post management taken this ill-conceived step? To make room for Sheila "Nobody's-Baby-But-Everybody's-Braying-Leftist-Twit" Copps. If you're shaking your head in puzzlement right now, you're not alone.
Which brings me to my point: if enough of us are shaking our heads, and if we tell The Post we're shaking our heads (and our wallets), do you think we could get them to reconsider? I can see you shaking your head again, and you're probably right.
Still, I've always believed some battles you fight because you can win, and others you fight because they need fighting. Here's how to contact The Post's Editor-in-Chief, Matthew Fraser. Keep it polite (put the baseball bat down, SD) - they didn't escort Colby to the door carrying his desk contents in a box - but let Fraser know how you feel.
