There is some crazy talk going around in the Province concerning an ailing confrere who is still recuperating. His health issues are talked about more as mockery and entertainment than a serious concern for the person already battling with his own demons. However what struck me this morning, after the initial phase of anger on coming to know of such ridiculous thrash, was the thought that these confreres knew nothing about the how and why of how this particular confrere became a victim of this illness. Neither were/are they concerned about wishing his speedy recovery. They just want to wag their tongues for no valid genuine reason - exact offshoots of unemployment! (Even a dog would not twitch its tail without a genuine reason).
