Zoloft Sales Soaring?

It’s an iconic editorial cartoon, 40 years old next week and so appropriate for today when half of Americans, more or less, are bemoaning the outcome of the presidential election. In November 1976 it felt a little bit like the end of the world too. In the Quebec provincial election the governing Liberals had been […]

Heading For The Border?

It is still Tuesday night as I type this and Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are virtually tied in the US presidential election vote. I don’t know who is gong to win; nobody does at this point.

Vote Now!

The American presidential election is Tuesday. Not being a US citizen, I don’t have a vote. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Relieved maybe that I don’t have to accept any of the blame for the outcome. This seems to have been the most polarizing campaign in American history. If I had a […]
