from a few days of Internet-free relaxation in the Rideau Lakes. Sad to hear that Jerry Yanover, the Liberal House of Commons expert, died suddenly Monday. He was a great guy with a brilliant mind. I wish I had not missed the funeral.
I'm still trying to understand "wafer gate" and would love to know how an error was somehow edited into my friend Rob Linke's story from Romeo Leblanc's funeral. Rob is as honest and accurate a reporter as you'll find anywhere, so I'm glad the Telegraph-Journal apologized to him. As for the firings, it seems to me that canning Richer was a bit of overkill, while the Irvings giving publisher Jamie Irving a 30-day suspension is just plain strange.
