It was bound to happen sooner or later, but in Canada?
Some diseases are racist. Yes, folks, if you want an equal opportunity disease, you can choose from a long list, but cystic fibrosis will not be among them. It has been accused of being... a white man's disease!:
The students' association of Carleton University in Ottawa refused to take up a collection this year for victims of cystic fibrosis on grounds that this disease was "not inclusive enough". According to the student leadership, this disease affects "mainly whites, especially men."
Like the Red Guard during the Cultural Revolution, the little troopers of political correctness have learned to anticipate the desires of their master. Not satisfied with merely accepting without resistance the ideological lead weight that is bearing down and suffocating our country, they push their zeal to include practices of heretofore unknown forms of ethno-masochism. As for example, leaving their blood brothers to choke to death in horrible suffering on the mere pretext... that they are their blood brothers. All we can do is hope that Mother Nature punishes these feeble-minded humanitarians who love their neighbor (especially if he is far away) in a manner consistent with the laws of genetics. Maybe they are, after all, carriers of the cystic fibrosis gene, and don't know it...

To illustrate this uplifting item from the groves (graves?) of Academe, I have chosen The Ship of Fools by the one and only Hieronymous Bosch. Inspired by a fifteenth-century German satire of the same name by Sebastian Brant (1458-1521), that tells of how a ship loaded with fools sails to a fool's paradise called Narragonia, the painting shows two nuns and a monk passing merry time while sailing to Heaven in a company of peasants in a strange boat with a May tree (symbolizing spring folk festivals, a time of moral license for folk and clergy alike) as a mast, a banner with a Muslim crescent instead of Christian cross, and many other humorous details.
