- Toronto Centaur in Critical Condition
Letter to the Editor, Globe and Mail, Tuesday January 30, 2001
What is this city coming to? Sure, we practice equality, but there are limits. So what if this centaur "accidentally" kicked somebody? Even if it was "accidentally", then what if he "accidentally" kicks someone off a subway platform and in front of an oncoming train? Is "accidental" murder acceptable? I have nothing against him, but then I have nothing against horses either. And we don't allow horses on the TTC for safety reasons. Not because we don't like horses, but because they are big and strong and can "accidentally" kill somebody.
I don't want to be killed, "accidentally". Do you?
