Calgary has a new mayor – a Muslim by the name of Naheed Nenshi! Described by Christopher Hume in the “Star” as “sophisticated, articulate and decidedly intellectual, he is everything (Rob) Ford isn’t.” Imagine – if Calgary, previously a nest of redneck right-wingers, has an intellectual mayor who talks about the importance of the arts and sustainability, and Toronto elects the redneck idiot whose only platform is rage, who says, “I like arts” and whose solution to car pollution is to get rid of traffic humps. What is happening in the world? France is on fire, and in the States, television pundits like Glenn Beck, unfortunately, and the sublime Jon Stewart have all the power. It’s mighty crazy.
