Poor Rob Ford

Rob Ford isn't concerned about his health.  He knows he should be - at some level, he feels pangs of concern about the consequences of his health - but he doesn't have a deep-down emotional connection between his behaviour and his health, which is why he was out pounding in signs at midnight.
It's foolish, this obstinate, pig-headed behaviour; he put himself at risk, as he has always done.  But he doesn't quit, does he?  There's something admirable in that.  For most people quitting is a default setting.
What upsets us the most about Rob Ford is the same fundamental behaviour that we admire the most.
Something to think about in that.
