The clown prince of prophecy 1617
PROFILE: JOE GRANVILLE

The clown prince of prophecy

He bears an odd resemblance to Ratso, the consumptive streetwise hustler Dustin Hoffman portrayed in Midnight Cowboy. Ratso, however, did not survive the bus ride and never made it to Florida. A bit taller, a bit older, but with the same hawkish, hungry, bug-eyed look, Joseph E. Granville made it all the way from Yonkers, N.Y., to Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, via Holly Hill, Fla., and earned $6.5 million on the way, telling anyone who would listen they were losers.

A dream of the big top

A pig is not such an unusual sight to see strolling jauntily alongside the barns at the fairgrounds in Aylmer, a small southern Ontario town. But its companion is another matter, a young man wearing a squashed hat, who leans down every now and then to exchange a kiss with the little pink beast.

A dowager's second debut

The “George” is back. The aged but still elegant phoenix of the West Coast’s inland passage to Alaska, the former CN cruise ship is being restored to duty, rising from a half-decade of oblivion and near extinction. Beginning in 1948, the stubby-bowed queen of the Vancouver-to-Alaska run carried more than 100,000 eager passengers on a romantic voyage to Skagway, back to the Gold Rush days of ’98.

JUSTICE

Tossing children into the balance

It all began innocently enough in Vancouver when University of British Columbia Professor William Polglase decided to fight his estranged wife’s court action. His lawyer, Donald Moir, argued that Rosemary Polglase’s applications in provincial family court for custody of their 14-year-old son, a restraining order against her husband and sole occupancy of the matrimonial home were not within that court’s jurisdiction.

Hue and cry

Following so closely on the heels of the John Lennon murder, this latest assassination attempt on an American president is sure to raise a great hue and cry for laws against fire-arms. What about the people who pull the triggers? Is it not a cop-out to zealously attack an easily identifiable object and ignore the complex psychological/social problems that cause these people to become assassins? -WESLEY VAN NEST,
