I like the CBC. Some of the best, if not the best, reporters in New Brunswick are employed by the public broadcaster.
But I’ll say this.
If Robert Jones got a bee in his bonnet about the root causes of the economic malaise in New Brunswick, every CBC listener would qualify for an honourary doctorate in the subject.
I heard another Jones piece this morning on the auto insurance sector.
He’s like David with that little slingshot up against the mightly Goliath.
Or maybe he’s like Don Quixote:
El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha
(The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote of La Mancha)
The book tells the story of Alonso Quixano, a man who has read so many stories about brave errant knights that, in a half-mad and confused state, he believes himself to be a knight, re-names himself Don Quixote de la Mancha, and sets out to fight injustice in the name of his beloved maiden Aldonsa, or as he knows her in his mind, Dulcinea del Toboso.
Robert Jones de la Mancha.
I like it.
