Emery update

Marc is still making news over the border. The big buzz seems to be about this remark he made months ago, while blogging from a jail in some backwater province where he was serving a 90 day sentence for passing one joint to someone at a rally. This is what he reportedly said.
"I thought the term Jewish-Nazi, or Nazi-Jew, was an oxymoron until Cotler became the Injustice Minister," Mr. Emery's posting said. "What a disgrace he is to his Jewish roots. He should -- so much -- know better."
Granted it was an inelegant and rather stupid remark. If he hadn't used the word Jew, there would be nothing to say about it. But whose words over the course of a lifetime could stand up to such minute scrutiny? He was pissed off. He said something in anger. I understand he apologized. End of story already.
