    As a mere Canuck, I just have so much respect for what you do and how you do it, and how often you do it. So I will be following you to the new site. Too bad that you didn’t take the opportunity to dump bmaz who, while his legal insights are quite useful, has little or no useful information about major world sporting events (/s).

    Looks like I screwed up the link. Let’s try again.

    What is new is the revelation that hacking was not confined to politicians and sports stars but to a missing little girl (who had been murdered so it turned out) and the families of those killed in the 7/7 bombings. This is by the reporter who broke the story.

    Well it’s certainly not surprising, but “nut surprising” seems to capture the theme equally well!

    Fed, the “old man”, is 29. Raffa is 25. Hardly a generational gap. Both are classy guys (cf McEnroe). Bmaz, have you given up on F1 now that Vettel seems to have wrapped up the championship. Too bad – his last two drives have been masterclasses (cf Hamilton).

    Hi bmaz

    Just in case this post does maintain into Sunday, and because I don’t tnink that Skdadl is too much into football, I wanted to remind you that it’s Grey Cup Sunday up here with a repeat of last year’s game between Montreal and Saskatchewan. The game is outside in Edmonton – like Green Bay, only colder. In last year’s game, Montreal kicked a field goal to win on the last play. On the previous play, they had missed the field goal to lose, but Saskatchewan were called for too many men.

    In addition, on the other side of the world, today is the start of the Ashes test series between England and the dirty diggers (Australia). That’s cricket for the uninitiated. There are a series of five test matches each of five days duration, and the first is being held in Brisbane at a stadium called the Gabba. The Australians have for a long time been the best team in the world but have struggled in recent series. To put this in some perspective, if England win the series and retain the Ashes, it will be a far bigger boost to the national ego than the wedding of any royal tosser.
