Better Late than Never

Canada's National Democratic Party (don't be fooled by the moderate name, these are dyed in the wool socialists) has relieved shameless publicity hound and ideological loony Svend Robinson of his foreign affairs critic position. On his recent trip to the Middle East Mr. Robinson expressed a desire to join Mr. Arafat in a goose-stepping competition around the temple mount but, after the Israeli government refused him access to his hero, he settled for being a celebrity judge at the Miss Teen Palestine Bomber of the Year Pageant. Or something like that. Anyway, congrats to the NDP for displaying some moral backbone; I didn't know they had it in them.
