disturbing dichotomies

Aside from being a neat alliteration, it disturbs me that Gatineau has 60 000 citizens without a family doctor, but Montreal has a Birkenstocks Hospital.

More distressing is that Canada's New Government has proposed a ban on camcorders, but doesn't want to ban handguns. Apparently Movie studio's profits are very important, Canadian citizen's safety less so.

I guess tough on crime means crime against foreign corporations not Canadians.

I just found out you moved back to Montreal but they don't have a phone # for you (I called directory info) and when I call the old #, they don't have a forwarding #. Please e-mail me back with your new phone#, I need to bring you up to date on what's happened to me; especially the two weeks around Christmas 2006 when I was in a hospital ICU near death...

E-mail me at or call my cell at 913-563-8277 (I'll give you my house # when we establish contact).
