I wish I could believe that Canadians will summon that sense of outrage the next time something really important happens but I can't. The fact that it takes someone messing with our hockey to get us riled up says quite a bit about us, I think.
On the news last night, they showed a woman who works at the CBC, answering the phone with a scratch pad in front of her. On the top of the pad, it said (I kid you not) "angry callers" and underneath that, she was making marks to indicate the number.
Also on the news last night, they mentioned all of the comments and emails the CBC had received. The camera scrolled down a page on their website and stopped on a single comment: Get rid of Cherry too they have become very stale and are no longer amusing.
