What's Wrong....

... With this picture?

Apparently, erstwhile Liberal leadership candidate and bad-boy fiddler Ashley MacIsaac recently tied the knot with his betrothed. Now, I know we live in a multi-cultural society where minority rights are respected, where everyone is accepted regardless of race, colour, creed, orientation, and so forth. I know all this, and really, I love Canada. I do.

But I do think things are going too far, when a serious and respected newspaper like the Ottawa Citizen plasters a giant picture across the middle of page 3, ready to ambush us unsuspecting readers in the midst of our coffee and cornflakes. Have they no shame? What makes the editor think it's OK to inflict unnecessary Ashley MacIsaac on us?
