BUSINESS WATCH

Crash of the great Crosbie dynasty

For four generations, these crusty entrepreneurs who treated politics just like any of their other business ventures, ran the island their way, and seldom drew a sober breath. According to an impressive new book, Rare Ambition, by journalist Michael Harris, the federal fisheries minister and surviving head of the clan may well be the least tipsy of the boozing Crosbies—alcohol killed his sister Joan at age 54 and led to his brother Andrew’s death at 57.

FANTASTIC VOYAGES

As the 20th century hurtles to a close, the dividing line blurs between the real world and the fantasies that, until recently, were confined to the realm of science fiction. New technologies are now overtaking society with such speed that many people barely understand one before it is replaced by another.

How the mighty barons have fallen

The newspapers, the supposed tough guys, are the biggest suckers of all. The myth in the common room down at the faculty club and in the beer parlors—both being the embodiment of lazy thought—is that the press is all-powerful, capable of overthrowing governments and leading public opinion.
