Middle class guilt

Edmonton Journal's Todd Babiak has a severe case of it and he wants you to catch it too.

Guilt is a powerful social and political motivator. But not to everyone. Some people are so untouched by feelings of guilt that they litter brazenly, cuss in public, drive Cadillac Escalades to the Tim Hortons on the corner, join the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and refuse to phone their moms. I am not so lucky. The vision of that man, spending his Sunday picking up garbage, feeling confused and defeated by my unmotivated verbal assault, haunted me all day.

I sleep fine at night.
