Is blogger Charles LeBlanc a Gonzo Journalist???

Originally uploaded by Oldmaison
First, if a JUDGE is 'assuming' that Charles is a 'legitimate member of the media' then obviously that assumption comes from somewhere. So it can easily be argued that that by definition makes charles a legitimate member of the media.

However, going to a classroom certainly doesn't mean charles will 'change his ways'. Why the judge made the assumption was because of past action, it was an assuption because the judge knows that in the future things can change.

And in a way they have. A long time ago somebody was griping that charles always talked about himself. That was untrue, and I counted through 20 of the latest posts and found that 15 had nothing to do with Charles.

However, the other day I did the same thing and it was reversed. The vast majority were about him, and there was very little 'coverage' of anything.

But that's a bit of semantics and people can debate it forever. I would say that there is a marked distinction between the blog now and the blog before charles arrest. At that time it's easy to see why the judge called charles a legitimate member of the media. Since his ban and his arrest it has been far different, and that's not particularly surprising as Charles is attempting to stand up for his rights.

However, there is less of an emphasis on events than there used to be.

As for his 'style' I think that needs a whole new word. The closest I could think of would be what Hunter S. Thomson was called- a 'gonzo journalist'. That's a style of writing where the journalist becomes the centre of an issue-although for charles it was unintentional. It's somewhat 'outside the pale' but still recognized.

Time to move on to other hobbies!!!

While giving a helping hand at the Soup kitchen. One woman asked me what was going on outside?

I looked and I believe it was three different individual walking around with three different cross.

I said - It must be born again freaks preparing for an event? Easter is gone. The halfway house is located in the back. People often see God while in jail.


So out the door I went with camera in hand.

My God? These must have believed that I was nuts because I was laughing my head off.....lol

I forgot the name of the group but they were training students how to find a airplane when it crashed.


You know looking for a black box.


Maybe someone knows the name of the group?

Hey Charles,

I went to a show the other week and saw this guy perform a one man bilingual show.
He was really funny but best of all he reminded me so much of you when you worked
at the shipyard.


The funny part is CBC Radio Canada did come to my place over 15 years ago and made a television piece on me and Lucien.

They showed Lucien the fictional character and Charles LeBlanc < letters to the editor > the real stuff!!!!..lol

But Lucien was gentle they said compared to Charles when he disrupted the C.O.R. Party meeting standing up for the Acadian flag.

Picture 023Picture 022

One Acadian standing up to 1,000 C.O.R. members? It was just like a black person crashing a meeting of the KKK!!!!...lol

The same action could happen at the next Liberal Party gathering?

Stay tuned!!!

Thanks for the memories.....

Daily Devotional

Are You Going to Leave?
by Father Daniel Ray, LC

Resolution: Today, accept any suffering that comes your way, confident that it is somehow part of God’s loving plan.

April 12, 2008
Saturday of the third week of Easter

John 6: 60-69
Many of the disciples of Jesus who were listening said, "This saying is hard; who can accept it?" Since Jesus knew that his disciples were murmuring about this, he said to them, "Does this shock you? What if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the spirit that gives life, while the flesh is of no avail. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But there are some of you who do not believe." Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe and the one who would betray him. And he said, "For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by my Father." As a result of this, many of his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. Jesus then said to the Twelve, "Do you also want to leave?" Simon Peter answered him, "Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God."

Introductory Prayer: Lord, I believe that you are present here and now as I turn to you in prayer. I trust and have confidence in your desire to give me every grace I need to receive today. Thank you for your love, thank you for your immense generosity toward me. I give you my life and my love in return.

Petition: In these moments I spend with you, Lord, help me to grow in faith and confidence in the path you have marked out for me.

1. Hard Words to Swallow Many of the Jews would not accept that Jesus was one with the Father—that he was God. For some, Christ’s divinity was a leap greater than they were ready to make. His message had not yet penetrated into their hearts. So when he explained how he would give himself to them in the Eucharist, they balked. The first act of faith (believe in his divinity) was crucial for them to be able to make the second act of faith (his Eucharistic presence). Each truth that Christ reveals about himself is connected to other truths he wants to reveal about himself. If we don’t accept one, the others can become difficult, too. Conversely, as we grow in our knowledge, faith, and love of Christ, other difficulties in our spiritual life become easier.

2. Do You Also Want to Leave? Christ’s invitation to accept his truth and his love is always just that: an invitation. He doesn’t force himself on us. Each saving truth he presents is free to be accepted by us, or be left aside. It is the same with each grace he offers us. After this discourse on the Eucharist, many of Christ’s disciples left and no longer accompanied him. As he had invited them to follow him freely, so were they free to go. But would they be able to share in the joy of his resurrection? Would they receive the fullness of life that he had promised them? Would they find what their hearts needed and wanted most if they no longer walked with Christ? All judgment is left to God alone.

3. To Whom Shall We Go? Peter already believed in Christ’s divinity. “We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.” Anything else Christ might teach or say Peter could accept, even if it was something he couldn’t fully understand. Peter’s confidence and trust in Christ enabled him to cut to the chase: What could he possibly gain by going anywhere else or to anyone else? Even if the path with Christ is strewn with great suffering—as it would be—what other direction could Peter possibly take that could be better?

Conversation with Christ: Lord Jesus, I too have come to believe and am convinced that you are the Holy One of God. How could I possibly find meaning and peace of soul anywhere except in you? Your words and your presence in the Eucharist are life for my soul.

Resolution: Today I will accept any suffering that comes my way, confident that it is somehow part of God’s loving plan.

Why not charge the Irvings for water before they take it all????

Originally uploaded by Oldmaison


They want to give our natural resource "WATER" to a private company. They can sell our water to the states, charges us the rates they want.

Why not keep our water and starting charging the large companies, who are the biggest users a rate that would be reasonable. Users like these get off paying their water use. Now the people of Saint John are put in a position of struggling with the infrastruture.

Water is like a gild mine so don't pass it off.

We are rich in natural resources which never runs dry but we must protect it from dangers of pollution and private companies.

LNG needs alot of water; sell it to them.

They charge us too much here for gas that is refined here and we get the health risks.

Wake up before we lose our water.



With the Telegraph controlling the questions people want answers; I do wonder if Michelle and a few others will get an advance look and be able to prepare their answers to these questions.

Please don't think that is not possible.

Our Irving paper should not have control of the questions for such an important election.

We had an Irving Dream team last time and no matter what topic no one could break that vote.

Norm, Michelle, Tait, Chase, Titus, White, McGuire were controlling how the vote went. Oh yes Chan at times was confused if was on the team or not.

This is how I saw it. We all have our own takes on what happen.

If you watch them over the last four years I am sure you had those thoughts too.

Bob McVicar supports Michelle Hooton??
