Is totalitarianism contagious?

Taking a page from the White House book of dirty tricks, CornCob Bob was uninvited to the government's party on account of corporate objections to CornCob Bob's message.

The National Capital Commission (NCC) said that Corn Cob Bob was not welcome at the main festivities on Ottawa’s Major Hill’s Park, because title sponsor Shell Canada wanted him out.
