    Yeah. We got clouds and I got a broken leg! Plus, now I realize it was way to late when I posted the time because I forgot about the three-hour difference!

    I wonder if anyone recorded the event?

    I got this one for you J.G., give your fingers a rest

    somebody writes something HERE:

    Daniel Pipes, you're a neo-con, libertarian with a fried left lobe connected to your right lobe and in J.G.'s world you're an American "fifth columnist" sent here by the C.I.A.proclaiming freedom of expression so Yankee Go Home
    P.S. Vive l'Alberta libre bye bye

    The Globe reports on the speech today:

    and yesterday had an article on the controversy over his appearance at U of T:

    At least the U of T professors that signed a petition objecting to Pipes' talk claimed to be in support of his right to speak. That much can't be said for some Rabblers, who wanted him banned from entry into Canada or were recommending that the government be there at the event to watch for any straying into the area of "hate speech."
