Even though Turkey is a member of NATO, they hate the Kurds more than they oppose the Islamic State terrorists. Obama has just given the […]
The Toronto PanAm Games are finally over, and we’re finding out now where some of those billions of dollars went. One expense in particular stands out: Those $400,000 a year PanAm bureaucrats invoiced $10,000 for car washes. For cars they got for free anyhow.

You actually enjoy talking to the pigeons outside one of the Starbucks on Robson.
One of their genial guys contacted me when I was up in Whitehorse to talk politics. This being the new era and all, I responded via text: The resulting story, which includes the far-more-noteworthy comments of my friend Dennis Mills, is here. What thinkest thou, O Readers?
