Praise the Scribe, Not the Sinner

I often forget to point out the goodness, so let me draw your attention to the second sentence of Edward Keenan's excellent Rob Ford profile in eye this week.

At the end of last month, maverick City Councillor Rob Ford was attacking the $1.5 million in grants the City of Toronto gives to AIDS awareness programs, since "if you are not doing needles and you are not gay, you won't get AIDS probably -- that's the bottom line." That was just the hum-along hook to an epic operetta dissecting Toronto's $50 million in grant programs.

Putting "hum-along hook" right next to "operetta" is a tidy bit of genius. Nice work. Class dismissed.
