QUOTED:

  • Paul Light on the tough choices for new Bush chief of staff:"Cheney is the real chief of staff in the White House. I think his first question should be, 'How do I get Dick Cheney to return my phone calls?'" - Seattle Post Intelliger, 4-2-06
  • John Hope Franklin on why the post-Katrina dialogue on poverty fizzled:"It's not so much Katrina as a phenomenon as it's Katrina as a metaphor for what our society has become. It reflects; it's a mirror of what we've become - super-extraordinarily complacent." - Chippewa Herald, 4-1-06
  • J. L. Granatstein on from Vimy to Afghanistan:"I think it comes from our desire to be different from the U.S. We've always said that the Americans fight wars and we keep the peace. And I think it goes back to 1956 and the Suez Crisis. Pearson's Nobel peace prize persuaded Canadians we had something good to do in the world and that we could change the world." - Toronto Star, 4-2-06
