To continue this useful analogy ...

The last time I fished halibut off of Constance Bank, near Victoria, the first 5 or 6 fish we pulled up were dog fish. We gutted them as you described and waited, while the remains floated down to halibut depth of about 300ft.

While their colleagues were busy fearing in dog fish remains we pulled up 6 nice fish, completely unmolested.

:)

Okay. One more.

During my Phase 1 at CFOCS Venture in Victoria about 15 of us cadets went off on a deep fishing expedition for an afternoon on a charter. Much alcohol was consumed and many dogfish hauled up.

One of the drunken games some played was doing fish/sword fighting trying to slap one another with squirming dogfish a la the Monty Python Fish Slapping dance albeit more robustly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8XeDvKqI4E

Word of this got back to staff as the senior cadet-in-charge of the outing was persuaded to find another career field.

What did Wendy Mesley say that was so egregious that the CBC is trying to wipe her from the face of the earth?

See? Eating their own guts. Loving it.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

I saw an article (I'll try to find it) that she said the "N word" while quoting an article while discussing ideas for a primetime event on Racism in Canada in a closed conference room.

Edit: Found it, Canadaland originally broke the story. https://www.canadalandshow.com/wendy-mesley-suspended-from-the-weekly/

Won't be long before authors aren't even allowed to use the word in period pieces...

HBO has pulled Gone With the Wind.  We have a DVD copy - one of the wife's favourite movies.  I'm expecting the CRTC to do a dynamic entry through our living room window at any moment.

You should see the list of shows that netflix, hulu et al have dropped from their lineups due to viewing 70s-90s content through 2020 goggles.

“a word that should never be used”

I could take a guess. But, not on here.
In any war, there are two tremendous tasks. That of the combat troops is to fight the enemy. That of the supply troops is to furnish all the material to insure victory. The faster and farther the combat troops advance against the foe, the greater becomes the battle of supply. EISENHOWER

She’ll be fine after some penalty box time. After all she’s just a national news personality who used one of the worst words in the human lexicon. Not like she’s a hockey colour guy calling a non specified group “you people” or anyone important like that.

This was a pretty good article written by a very decent chap about how radical progressives are disrupting even the grace of the core left: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-jk-rowling-backlash-shows-how-progressives-are-turning-on-their-own/
