from the world of the politically correct, and doing business in winchester.

Once upon a time around the almost beginning of political correctness, I seriously thought this crap was so stupid, so illogical, so ..??
I really thought people would see it for what it was and return to common sense.  I actually thought folks would tire of it and kick it into the long grass.
But no. People are not tired of it.  The ppl who practice pc as a lifestyle, can all be found on the left.  I can not imagine even the silliest of conservatives or anyone on the right, buying this crap. A major open sore point is, like it or not, we are all cursed because those pc people have taken over the language and it all started maybe 35 or 40 years ago.  I started as I seen to recall it, when the very innocent word Miss, was changed to Ms.
All because a highly vocal and well organized minority convinced the world that Miss was misleading and offensive.
As you all know, the ‘G’ word has become so entrenched and accepted, it has an entirely different image now.  Ref. to gay

OK so here.
Will this actually be accepted and how many will follow this line of thought? 

I know this falls under what our Turtler would describe as a non story. And it really is that.  But when I read it yesterday it was like one more small item, so small in fact that it would simply wash over us all and be forgotten, until another play would be found to have another new offensive word.


‘Snow White and the Seven Friends’: theatre changes tune over ‘offensive’ dwarfs

De Montfort Hall in Leicester responds to criticism after reportedly saying that ‘dwarf’ is “generally not a word that people feel comfortable with”

A theatre has hit back after reportedly removing the word ‘dwarfs’ from its pantomime production of Snow White for fear it would cause offence.

De Montfort Hall in Leicester is said to have told the media that Snow White will instead be accompanied by seven “friends” because dwarf is “generally not a word that people feel comfortable with”.

Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sneezy and Sleepy in the production will be replaced by child actors billed as “friends”, the Leicester Mercury reported.

But the theatre has now clarified its position, saying that the panto - entitled ‘Snow White’ - would still refer to the characters as “dwarfs”, though they will be played by a child dance troupe wearing costumes instead of adult actors.

The original reports produced a backlash from actor Warwick Davis, who suspected it was a way of boosting the panto’s profit margins by involving children as opposed to professionals.

Mr Davis, the 3ft6ins star of Harry Potter and Star Wars, told the Leicester Mercury it was “patronizing” that “people are offended on our behalf”.

Now Anthony Flint, general manager at De Montfort Hall has told The Independent the panto was based more on the 1812 Grimm fairytale than the 1937 Disney film, which has a bigger role for the dwarfs.

Social media was, inevitably, awash with claims of “political correctness gone mad”.

Meanwhile in the real world.

We need to get the house painted before winter. Been planning it for awhile and made to fit into budget.  So there’s a local fellow who does building work and just about anything related to it.  He’s done work for us in the past, never had a problem. He built the platform for me, that our front loading washing machine sits on. He’s replaced the covering blown off our garage in a violent storm, replaced an unnecessary large window in the back with something else, so he has been reliable. Until just recently. In what for us has been typical way of doing business in these parts, by which I mean people who do not show up on time but more usually do not show up at all, and getting a phone call is more like a root canal.
I was told at 1pm this afternoon, that he’s be here in a half hour to go over the place and see what he’d need yadda,yadda.
It’s past 6pm now .... haven’t heard a thing so far.

We’re a bit over a week late with install of last two windows and a front door. The supplier sent the door but not the side windows.
Just another business day (or maybe week) doing business here.
Kinda like they way they do it in So.Calif.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
