Toronto: Vote for Tory, kowtow to the wealthy

A vote for John Tory is a vote to continue the long tradition of citizen subservience to the Canadian moneyed classes. Is there anyone in Toronto more a scion of the wealthy than Mr. Tory?

Yow! 15 hours on a plane, and that only counts the time in the air.

The good news is, after a brief three-hour leg-stretch in the Hong Kong airport, there's only nine hours in the air left! (I think.) ...

Airport's not bad...

Made the mistake of arriving at the airport when my travel agent advised. Sailed through baggage check-in, and left myself with 2 3/4 hours left before boarding.

First travel victory? Managed to commandeer a hydro plug in the lounge...

Triple the number of bicycles on Toronto's streets? Brrrrr!

You can't beat foresight when engaged in strategic planning.

Being able to do thought experiments about the consequences of adopting a strategy or tactic is crucial to one's ability to handle those consequences. That can be true even when your strategy is successful.
