The sad state of politics and journalism...

in this country is revealed by the excessive attention on The National and elsewhere over the relationship between Belinda and Peter MacKay, DDS.

I'd hate to see Pete go through the breakup of a relationship that lasted longer than a handful of months. Get a grip, man.

As for the journalists, try doing a series of stories on shallowness among the country's scribbling class as revealed by the reporting on the Stronach business.

Jane Taber, for example, is starting to sound like Joan Rivers without the wittiness of that decidedly unfunny bauble-hawker.
