Everyone knows it's a cartoon, but the fact is, there are serious issues that council gets wrong on a regular basis. This isn't just some joe blow putting up a cartoon on a street pole or his own personal website. It's our daily paper. Hamilton city council provides no shortage of cartoon material, but instead we get a cartoon with no substance that is just a personal shot at someone. We all know the Spec's biases such as parading around the character in the front cover story yesterday who insists on maintaining a toxic, dangerous property that all parents will need to be sure their pets and kids stay away from just so he can avoid 'one dandelion'. Our society has gotten to this point?? A dandelion and a suburban 'picture lawn' is more important than human health?? I simply don't get it. Manicured lawns are one of the stupidest things I've ever heard of. Adding cancer-causing toxins to ones lifestyle in order to maintain such a lawn is even more insane.

Don't worry about McHattie or his 'fan club'. Residents in this part of the city are not only able to endure being 'looked down' upon by folks in other parts of town, but we actually enjoy it and revel in the fact that our area isn't like many others in Greater Hamilton.
