Most of you probably know the Mike Danton story but if you don't, you can look it up and read about this bizarre tale.
The latest example of things best left unsaid and really best left unwritten.
“Heading to Toronto on April 1st,” Danton tweeted. “Would love to run into, or over, @simmonssteve.”
@Simmonsteve is Toronto Sun columnist Steve Simmons. Last year, Simmons published The Lost Dream, a book about Frost and the unfortunate young people lured into his orbit.
After spending 5 years of a 7 1/2 year sentence in the US, on March 19 2009 his request to be transferred yo a Canadian prison was granted. On Sept 11 2009, he was granted parole.
In fall 2009 he applied to Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia for January 2010 entry. Danton initially enrolled in three courses for the winter 2010 semester and joined the Saint Mary's Huskies varsity men's hockey team. On March 28, 2010, the Saint Mary's Huskies defeated the Alberta Golden Bears to win the 2010 University Cup. On October 4, 2010 Danton was named an Academic All-Canadian based on a student CIS athlete achieving a grade point average of 3.7 or higher. Danton achieved a 3.9 GPA overall.
On December 17, 2011, Orli Znojmo of the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga announced the signing of Mike Danton. He will spend the remainder of the season with the South Moravian club.
Now he doesn't appear to be brain deficient but Danton is left having reinforced the image he appears to want to dispel. That’s his punishment.
Twitter allows more people to read stupid thoughts.
And this is no April Fool's joke but he might look like one.
