    Ah, the entertaining Mr. Jonas to the end. What a wonderful bit of ironic humour, masked as pomposity!

  2. A man whose views were anathema to most of the readers here, with at least one exception.

    Dear George; can we not let the dim at least try? After all “Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for?” Browning

  4. The times sure are achngin: George’s byline is missing in the National Post.
    I don’t see him shmoozing with his pals at the Coffee Mill, on Saturday mornings. The Coffee Mill itself is, but a memory.
