A certain amount of emotionalism and a whole lot of media drivel was to be expected from the passing of Rob Ford. Indeed, we have that, layered as it should be, over an acknowledgment that his family’s (ongoing) pain is quite real. Even for us reading the media output after the big man’s passing from cancer has been pretty awful stuff. The combination of North America’s aspirational culture with the political illiteracy of the masses offers us one of its most disturbing manifestations in the career of Rob Ford.
We like these three items because they offer considered perspectives on Ford and Ford Nation.
