I've been waiting for the monster storm---the wind, the rain, the thunder, possibly the snow. Nothing has been happening except that the temperature went up to 19C, which is warm for this time of year.
I can't believe I'm writing about weather---one of my least favourite topics in the world. In fact it's right up there with fussball, travelling to Las Vegas and orthopoedic science.
Actually, I wish I were able to write with some distance and more understanding about how heavy my heart is around the Omar Khadr issue, and how disappointed I am in what appears to be my country's complacency. I know that many people think otherwise, and I respect that, but I still hold to my belief that this was badly handled and has had an unneccessarily tragic result. A child soldier is a child soldier, and torture is torture. Where are the grey areas?
