....Many people think that you can make sense out of an average of anything at all. My usual reply is to ask what an average over telephone numbers means. Temperature is like that. When averaged, it does not produce an actual temperature of anything, any more than an average over telephone numbers must be a callable number, let alone a number you might care to call......

"So many people have asked me about this. So many people want the families of soldiers who die over there to know people care.
And so does a veteran named Don Ashfield, who was the Sun reader who pointed out to me in the first place that the city was going to have the Support Our Troops decals removed from emergency vehicles.
Neither of us realized just how upset you would be about that. You shamed those who tried to sneak this through into getting on your side.....
"It took the Canadian government 40 years to recognize us and finally give us a medal," he said. "The problem was half the guys were already dead."
We are not going to let any politician treat these fine men and women like that.
We need as a country to get behind them no matter what......
. "One bridge has now become several bridges from Courtice Rd., east to Port Hope and 50 people have become hundreds of people including families with children all saluting the troops," he said. "It's an unusual sight for which I know no precedent, except the funeral cortege for Princess Diana."
The plane is scheduled to come in at 5:30 and after they are repatriated on the tarmac they will then head to Toronto. You can salute them by going down to Trenton and standing outside the gate or getting on any one of the bridges and overpasses on their way to Toronto.
Many people pull off the road as the procession moves. This weekend's unofficial ceremony is expected to be the biggest ever. Those on council who didn't understand they sentiment of the country will get it now. There is no advertising campaign, no government decision necessary. It's just Canadians who feel strongly they want to say thank you. Thanks for what you did.
Bring your Kleenex if you decide to partake in this.....

"It's telling, or should be, that for hundreds of Palestinians, the light at the end of their tunnel is, literally and figuratively, Israel.
Since Hamas has taken control of the Gaza Strip following bloody battles with its Fatah rivals, women, children and Fatah fighters have cowered in a now squalid tunnel hoping to enter Israel and safety.

"The world says so little. So few words compared to what was said when Israel defended itself against holy fascist murder gangs in Lebanon or Fatah child-killers in the West Bank. The world lied about the numbers or blindly accepted everything the notoriously dishonest Palestinian spokespeople had to say. The world called for boycotts and motions and condemnation.
