The Thread, August 28, 2011

The Thread

Every week we will be posting a whiff of provocation and inviting you to join the conversation in the comments section below. You may respond to the original subject or to previous postings. Play nice. CPC and CharPo contributors will be joining the convo from time to time.

This Week:
The National Post's Christie Blatchford took some time to blast the late Jack Layton's deathbed letter for sophistry and ambition. Blatchford's op-ed became the furor of the social networks and many saw it as tasteless and ill-timed. We are wondering if it is not something more pernicious. Has the first volley been fired in a culture war between left and right which may threaten arts across the country, especially theatre? Discuss.
