NOTE: I just had to respond to Marjorie’s news clippings sent to the Castlefield Institute in Toronto
EPISODE 500: THE PERIL OF SELF-IDOLATRY
SMASH A WINE BOTTLE — GOOD SPEAKERS PROP(A comment re: newspaper articles sent by Marjorie)
Well, I will now be disliked…too many articles and pics about me. Quite ashock to see them today.. Marjorie is hard to control.Two years ago….Feb. 29,2020, I was about to make speech on theterrible condition of the Great Lakes at the Stonehooker Breweryin Port Credit. A fancy affair. $100 a plate fund raiser. Marjorie wantedto introduce me. She became the speaker…took 21 minutesin the introduction, the feature of which was when she dropped an emptywine bottle from lectern to cement floor. It exploded with shards ofglass going all over. She did not even pause. Kept on speaking whileShaymus was gathering up glass fragments at her feet.Of course she became the feature of the evening. I shortened myspeech from 40 minutes to 10 minutes much to the relief ofall since I did not have an empty wine bottle to smash for attention.The wine bottle had a label quoting Albert Einstein saying “an openmind means a person is capable of listening to new ideas.” (My words, Einstein’s idea)Actual Einstein words “The mind that is open to new ideas will never returnto the same size”I had the good sense to shut up.alanps. Please do not think I sent those newspaper articles as anact of self-idolatry.pps. Start reading wine bottle labels.
