Long-time London Free Press editorial columnist Rory Leishman's Oct. 24th column, A Rising Tolerance for the Wrong, was rejected for publication by the newspaper, citing Leishman's apparent failure to attend a play at the Grand Theatre that he employs as an example of the "flagrant exhibitions of sexual promiscuity have coarsened our entire culture." As purveyors of gratuitous culture themselves of only a less lurid but no less degenerating nature, the editorial staff at the Free Press are no friends to this sort of commentary. However, Joel Johannesen at Proud To Be Canadian has taken the opportunity to publish A Rising Tolerance for the Wrong, with an explanatory preface by Leishman, here, instead of at the London Free Press.
