    “Should” doesn’t mean “will”. America loves its celebrities.

    Oh, another possible effect of global warming, more wildfires in the prairie provinces. A friend of mine has started a Gofundme for aid for northern AB reserves.

    People have gone to the chair on way less evidence than that against Cosby. On the other hand, innocent folk have gone to the chair.

    The evidence against him was overwhelming before this latest disclosure. Now it is pretty much impossible to believe he didn’t do it on a regular basis.

    It is of course possible that some of the allegations are eventually shown to be false. But absent evidence of some loony billionaire spending $20million a year to create false claims, it looks pretty solid.

    I’m a little behind in the Cosby story, but reading the original articles it seemed he was passing it off as giving the women drugs in exchange for sex, not admitting that he had drugged them to commit rape. It looked to me like he was still talking around what he’d done.

    To be clear I believe that he did deliberately and secretly drug women to commit rape. I add this as the statement’s been misunderstood where I’ve posted it elsewhere.
