It is not normally the custom of this blog merely to replay videographical material recorded by the actual ladies and gentlemen of the media, who are paid to pursue investigations of a disquisitionary nature.
Nevertheless, it is from time to time the mission of your blogger to draw the attention of readers to connections and parallels between seemingly unrelated data that help to explain some of the more enigmatic and impenetrable phenomena of modern life.
So, for example, while the exchange shown above between Stephen Duckett, the well-known doctor of economics who also heads Alberta’s rapidly disintegrating province-wide health board, and several employees of the media of mass communication seemingly makes little sense to Albertans, and even less to those not resident here in Wildrose Country, viewed in its proper context it is rendered coherent and lucid.
On its own, the video clip above is simply impenetrable, except as a possible violation of Section 21 of the Alberta Strange Sketch Act, which prohibits the use of a cookie and a stout man in a goatee to conclude a sketch.
However, to paraphrase George Orwell, the following clip renders the exchange between Dr. Duckett and the ravening jackals of the gutter press as clear as window glass.
And that, dear readers, is how the health care system crumbles. Dr. (PhD) Duckett is a Great Australian.™
