We have a Canadian hero and Canadian villain all within a week. Let's talk about the hero Kevin Vickers and let the courts decide what to do about Gomeshi and hope they each get their just rewards.
I don't know why but the one about Tim Cook made me laugh out loud, literally. I was scrolling through them and that one caught my eye for some reason. I guess I just can see that happening. Thanks for the laughs this morning. Much needed.

It was a bittersweet couple of weeks for Canada, that's for sure, Shawn.

I'm amazed how the Pope keeps popping up in political cartoons lately. On gays, evolution and other things, he's way out there. I'm a lapsed Catholic but he's really shaking the church up somewhat.
I'm a converted Episcopalian and while I think it's positive the things he has been saying, I'm still not convinced.

The Catholic church has been stuck in tradition and the same dogma for years. Even a movement of inches is significant.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
