worse with Rolston. Check out this post from Ampersand on 'Alas, A Blog':

the commentary in the `Globe and Mail' (ie. the `Dull Grey Mail') does not reflect the attitudes of any but an elite of people who gain their self-identify only from being anti-American.

Average Canadians who actually work hard for a living don't have any illusions about what kind of people the Islamic fascists are.

Also, don't be fooled by `polls' which reportedly show `a majority' of Canadians are against a U.s. move against Iraq. In fact, it is less than a majority when counted against those who don't know, and those who are in favour are nearly as numerous as those who are not. However, the `Dull Grey Mail' nor any other pub (except the Nat Post) is ready to publicize this fact.

Sorry Pat, but while the NatPost has been known to occasionally print a decent column by Matt, it's been an over-politicized embarrassment for its entire short life, both during the Black and Asper eras. They wouldn't know how to run a vaguely balanced newsroom to save their lives. The little outburst the other day, where it publicized the release of Jack Granatstein's academic report and then gave him an op-ed column Then again, if Fox News is your idea of "fair and balanced," then I can't do anything to help you...

Matt, apologies for mixing you up re newspapers. The Toronto Star (my former employers) are Canada's largest, circulation wise, by a considerable margin... I fucked up the link in my initial post. It has since been corrected.

I sometimes forget people other than Torontonians read this newfangled Internet thing.
