Moral of the story: SFH are godlike geniuses, and we anticipate the news before it even happens. Here, again, is ‘Rob – The Rob Ford Song,’ featuring Steve Deceive, the mysterious strummer who has disappeared into the Bermuda Triangle, never to be heard from again.
Harper and PMO will lose: falsely calling someone a terrorist is among the most serious libels you can make. They’ll insist on settling with a non-disclose, but if I were advising NCCM – and I am not, and have not – I’d tell them to get stuffed. An apology made in secret isn’t one.
But I understand why Rolling Stone did it. This guy – as I said to my former Boss last week, a notable progressive leader himself – is the most famous progressive leader in the world. If he is not stopped from carrying out long, long overdue reforms, I now believe Pope Francis can change the Catholic world – and, perhaps, the greater world beyond that.
I am a regular church-going Catholic (lately, twice a week) – and I favour the ordination of women, the recognition of Catholic gay marriage, and women’s reproductive freedom. I’ve always been in a Catholic minority (I think) because of that, but the smiling guy up above is giving me hope that may not always be the case.

The anniversary passed and I didn’t even notice. I suspect I’m not alone, in that regard. Telling.
A year ago, a friend of many years – a friend I’d cut off family vacations to help out, a friend I’d violated confidences to protect, a friend I considered a brother – looked me in the eye and said: “Don’t worry. We’ll go the Tories before we’d support her.”
He wasn’t only one telling big lies last January, but he’s the one I won’t forgive or forget. In politics, the only currencies that count are loyalty and trust. Nothing else matters.
Another political truism I live by is this one: something that starts in easy lies always ends in hard truths. And a hard, hard rain is coming for you, RW, and I will celebrate it when it does.
