You could call this the start of the slippery slope but that wouldn't quite be accurate, would it?

Does anybody really think that if Michael Moore had simply shown his home movies that he still would have won at Cannes?

Hey, aren't these people supposed to oppose low-wage labor?

I think someone should start a 'fair trade' media campaign

Peter Rosenthal is a fairly well known lefty lawyer in Toronto. So it is interesting that according to this article he is representing a group of 'conservatives' who are trying to block the already completed merger of the PC and Alliance parties. Couldn't these senior citizens find anyone else to represent them? Or are they so 'Red Tory' that they don't know of any non-lefty lawyer who would help them?

Going to google can be very informative, and not for the obvious reasons. For example you can google the words 'Rumsfeld' and 'resign'. When I did this I found that BBC News came up pretty early.

Now regardless of you political opinion you'd have to be not from this world if you thought that Rumsfeld/Rummy/Rumstud will ever resign. So what does this say about the Beeb?

I've been wondering about the outrage over the mistreatment of Iraqi prisoners and the naivite that must have spawned it.

Maybe its because so many people have been brought up on this

Somebody (ie somebody but not me) should set up a website where people could input the name of a major war in world history and the website would come up with comparisons between it and Vietnam. Military historians, where are you?

The success of John Dean's anti-Bush book is interesting. Dean has absolutely no new information to give to the reader, indeed claims none. The only reason for its success nostalgia on the left. Nothing new, all old.

The dogs that don't bark-With all the hubbabaloo about the torture allegations its interesting to hear the silence of every single Arab government, as well as anyone connected with them.

Of course the reason is because that whatever the Yanks and Brits did do, Arab governments do weekly-and on a worse scale

PS Its nice to hear the silence of the Canadian government on this. Canada likes to do things like ban landmines (which was easy to do since it meant Canada could give up nothing and get a good feeling from it). After what happened in Somalia Canada can't be quite so smug.

When I started reading this article, and read the words 'militant anti-abortion groups' I immediately thought of dead abortionists or at the very least pickets. But what 'militant' here means is providing services to pregnant women-in fact all services except abortion.

Is the writer pro-choice or simply pro-abortion?

What the Globe and Mail is calling bad news for Stephen Harper is in reality good news for him. This article talks about PC party members who plan to vote Liberal. Bad news? Not necessarily, as all the people mentioned appear to be , how should I say, approaching their expiry date. As I've pointed out before, the 'red Tories' are doomed because they don't have a youth wing. This article helps prove it

Do you ever get the feeling that a lot of business journalists would rather be writing about something else and are only lowering themselves to business writing for career reasons?

Check David Olive's 'business' article in the Toronto Star's 'business' section'

Or check slate.com's Daniel Gross' own website and the link he provides which connects to this.

Poor successful guys
