Meet Justin Landen, MD, of the Hill Barton Surgery, in Exeter, Devon, Great Britain.
He reportedly cares DEEPLY about Mother Earth. And how do we know that ? Because he gives unsolicited advice that "having more than two children is irresponsible", to his patients. Specifically, one that came in, not for an OB/GYN consult, but because she had possible tonsilitis. . . . He also inferred that she was "on benefits" (i.e. welfare, to us Yanks). So now it becomes clear: he's not against PEOPLE breeding, he's against the POOR breeding. Now, while he may have a point (as any of us who have read Kornbluth's "The Marching Morons" would recognize. . . ), teh Stoopid here is BLURTING IT OUT TO THE PATIENT.
Indeed, teh Stoopid is strong in the British Isles today. In fact, we have a Double Dose of teh Burning Stoopid today.
Meet Eoin McKeogh, Irish College Student at Dublin City University . .
Some time back, a video was made of someone running out on a cab fare. That somebody was NOT Eoin, but apparently looked like him. . .which someone commented on, in a response to the original video. And much harassment and laughter followed, all over the net. So what did young Eoin do? Try to clear his name ? Ride it out ? Turn it into internet stardom, like Mahir or Libby Hoeller ???
No, he was VERY American about it. . . he SUED Google and YouTube, to take down the Video. Not the actual comment, but the entire video. And, today, he got a Judge to agree. Because Eoin said it was possible, even if "inconvenient" for Google and YouTube. . .
Because, of course, it's EASY to permanently remove something from the Net. Not.
I have but one reaction. . . .
