Michael Enright proves himself an arrogant bourgeoisie again.

He doesn't say on air on CBC Radio that he doesn't like Burns.

He says on air to the anger and embarrassment of Scottish descendants and immigrants in Canada and fans of poetry everywhere around the world that Burns is a bad poet.

Understandably, he generates lots of email.

Unfortunately, that's probably his goal. Better than a thoughtful discussion of Burns' work.

...but it got him laid like a bandit, so it's ok.


And Michael's just pissed that everyone knows Robert is by far the more interesting of the CBC's Enrights.

Yes, and still among the best expenditures for tax money of any government project.

(DWB, have you filed to remove yourself from RevCan's lists? Just because we Canadians go live abroad, doesn't mean we're automatically exempted from paying taxes. Take it from someone who's been audited--twice. You need to remove yourself from the lists by filling out a non-residency form.)
