News of the world

I read so many interesting stories in the news this weekend! Our national paper in particular, I thought, was rife with goodness. I value preposterousity in a woman, which is why I enjoy reading Margaret Wente even when she's wrong, but this time I thought she was right on the mark about Belinda Stronach. How brilliant were Susan Swan's Tips for Stephen Harper, emerging writer? This wonderful interview with Michael Ondaatje. Yann Martel wants to know what is stephen harper reading? I liked Laura Penny's column on idiot media. Across the sea, Jodi Picoult is profiled. What writers need to write (Douglas Coupland says chocolate). Most importantly India Knight on the royal break-up.
