This was too precious not to share. Our friend over at Salmon Confidential Exposed brought it to our attention.
Hopefully this person doesn’t make all her life decisions based on what she “just knows.”
Because even though you “just know” the universe wants you to have that parking spot, when magical thinking hits reality, reality wins.
It seems Alexandra Morton, embarrassed by a particularly stupid comment she made back in February, has deleted the post from her blog and is now pretending she never said it.
Morton is technically correct. The words “in quotes” were not hers. What she actually said was:
… While the governments of British Columbia and Canada turn a blind-eye, I believe the Norwegian salmon feedlots operating in BC are perpetrating one of the greatest threats known to the living world. Turning feedlot viruses from the Atlantic Ocean loose into the Pacific is damage that might not ever be repaired.
She may try and deny she ever said this, but even though she has deleted the original post from her blog, (which was found at the following URL: http://alexandramorton.typepad.com/alexandra_morton/2013/02/voice-to-salmon.html ), the link still shows up in a Google search (see the eighth result).
This is what it looks like in the Google search results:
Why did she delete the blog post?
UPDATE: 4:06 p.m. 10/04/2013
A sharp-eyed reader found that Morton’s original blog post was reposted by the Gorilla Radio blog, and is still available online in its entirety. Read it for yourself. We have also now archived a PDF copy for posterity.
