The July 1-8 issue of Maclean's sucked all around.

- a Canada Day special report that was just more pointless patting ourselves on the back about how much better we are than the Americans;
- coverage of Nigella Lawson's alleged domestic dispute. If I wanted to read about those sorts of things, I'd read a celebrity gossip magazine;
- the article about monogamy being a problem. Sex is meant to be shared by one man and one woman within the context of marriage. The women mentioned in the article were probably all engaging in premarital sex, or fornication as it is more properly known. When you reduce sex from the most intimate thing a couple can do together to a pleasurable activity that should involve as many participants as possible, you set up a situation where sex will eventually become boring. The only way to relieve this boredom is to move onto a new partner or introduce sinful and immoral things like pornography.;
- an article about another stupid and filthy show from the creator of "Desperate Housewives." The titles of both this guy's shows sound like the names of movies Count Floyd would show on "Monster Chiller Horror Theatre.";
- a review of a new book about Nicola Tesla wherein the reviewer basically demands everybody unquestioningly except what the book has to say about the inventor. Niet, comerade!;
- a review of a book about American exceptionalism which does the same thing with the reviewer getting in a whole bunch of digs at our neighbour's to the south. Sure, America is far from perfect. However, the States have done a lot of good for the world. Many of her other faults were caused by Jewish interests interfering with matters.;
- Scott Feschuk's column. I don't want to hear anybloodymore about the Senate scandal. By the way, Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy and (I think) Nigel Wright all worked for CTV at one time. Has anyone bothered to look into whether that network is involved in anything concerning this dibacle?
