When women get harassed on the street, or at a bar, or on their walk home from work, do you know what we think? We wonder, am I going to get out of this safely? Am I going to walk away from this? Where are my keys if I need to stab someone in the eye? Are there people on the street? Will they hear me? Which way will I run? Solar Plexus, Instep, Nose, Groin. I’m exaggerating, but only so slightly. Does it disturb you that we think like this? That we have to think like this?
I would absolutely agree with Ford when he says he does not benefit from the Foundation, if he didn’t brag about it at every opportunity.
No one disputes Ford’s passion for the game of football and helping kids, but does this give him a free pass to ignore and skirt rules and regulations he does not agree with?
Unlike Ford, the kids who participate in his football program cannot do the same thing in life without suffering serious consequences.
Another condescending downtown elitist who just hates the mayor. Oh, wait …
His, “Hey, I’m just a regular guy,” persona has worked for him up to now, at least when he’s consistent. But sometimes it isn’t and I’m not referring to his nice new car. I’m talking about his dismissive attitude when caught reading or talking on his cell phone while driving, and all of the other distractions he has unwittingly inflicted upon himself. People remember stuff like that. Even the most patient supporter of Ford is going to start thinking at some point that, “this guy doesn’t think he has to play by the same rules as everyone else.
From that condescending downtown elitist Adrienne Batra. Oh, wait …
