Today's op-ed piece

I finally got my life organized enough to be able to write commercially for a wide audience again.* This piece ran today in the Montreal Gazette. It's an attempt to somewhat debunk the myth of wartime unity. Anyone who wants to read a pretty good analysis of the real situation on the home front should read Jeff Keshen's "Saints, Sinners and Soldiers". Keshen is a brilliant young professor at the University of Ottawa, a prolific author, and my thesis supervisor. He's also a really nice guy.

*I did have a column in the weekly, then monthly, now defunct Ottawa City Journal, but that was more for fun than anything.
