Robin Shantz is a good friend who, among other things, reads and reviews all things sci-fi.
Check out his take on a new work with the delectable title, "The Yiddish Policeman's Union."
Note that I have also added Robin's blog to my lnks list in the right hand column.

Why do I have trouble buying into Premier Campbell's regular announcements of more homes for the homeless?
So Covenant House will get several million dollars and 32 new beds.
I have the same credibility problem with Covenant House as I do with the premier.
I do know that from the get-go Covenant House has been masterfully marketed.
I do know that most of the "new" housing units are old hotel rooms.
I do not see the federal government and the provincial government joining hands to create entirely whole new living spaces.
I do see offensive foto ops.

I remember that cold winter day in Edmonton in 1975 when Horror-luck was re-elected mayor. He was a convicted crook. But Edmontonians loved him, I guess. They named parks after him.
I remember I could barley summon the will to get out of bed.
Now, history repeats itself on a grander, more operatic scale.
Berlusconi, a crook and a scoundrel of ever there was one, has been re-elected prime minister of Italy for the third time.
Whatever are they thinking over there?
Read the tragic story here, and weep for a beautiful country lost in the haze.

There was Early Warning (yesterday), and now there's early morning.
I have to leave the house very early this morning, so I won't get to post the usual madness until mid-day.
If you're a morning Tube watcher, I'm on Breakfast TV on City at about 8:15.
