Today’s “Globe”

A fabulous article by my hero Jeffrey Simpson, on our vile government:

And while we’re with the august “Globe” – today I received a great kind of present, a note from a former student about publication. Brava, Anne. It’s a beautiful article.

Hi there.
I love reading your blog as it reminds me of the wonderful voice that inspired me last year.
After a summer trip to Ireland, I have been hard at work this fall trying to find more spaces in my life to write.
I am busy sending this and that out but my first success was today’s essay in Globe and Mail.
Thought you might be interested.
Warm regards,
Anne Langford

And another stunning, very moving obit of Hitchens, by his friend Ian McEwan:
