There are several reasons, as faithful readers must know, for writing this column. One is that my Gucci-Rolex children must be kept in the BMWs they are accustomed to. Another reason is that I am, as most people know, seriously underemployed, and on Wednesday mornings—deadline day—have absolutely nothing to do and so, restless as usual, look at the computer until Thursday when I almost never get it done unless I wait until Friday and then, just to keep the editors amused, sometimes drag it out until Saturday morning in the faint realization that it will still hit the Toronto newsstands on Monday morning.By Allan Fotheringham4 min
