Have a good Robert Burns Day! (2 videos)

My grandparents were from Falkirk, Scotland, where Tommy Douglas was born, and came across to Canada the same year as the Douglas family. I fondly remember attending Sons of Scotland summer and winter picnics in my youth.

I have recently become a real blog watcher and so I was distressed to see Canadian racists (StormFront) blogging about their Scottish heritage to promote their facists beliefs.

I like this first video for Scotland the Brave as it reflects progressive Scotland today, not as mytholgized Aryans.

This video is a short documentary on Burn's "A man's a man for all that".
