Winging To Toronto

The First Mate and I will wing our way to Toronto this morning to visit Canada for her first time and my second. I will speak at a journalism conference on Tuesday night, but we decided to spend the week in the city to see some of the nation about which I wrote so extensively this past spring and summer. Canadian politics has quieted down some since the Gomery inquiry stopped hearing witnesses, and I'm hoping to reconnect to Canadian story lines while I'm visiting.

I'll be blogging from Toronto and other points in the area as we do some sightseeing and getting some needed R&R. Perhaps we'll run into a couple of CQ fans along the way. If you see a middle-aged guy with a navy blue captain's hat, that just might be me!

UPDATE: It's 3:30 pm in Toronto, and no one's arrested me yet. I must be safe! We had a wonderful flight through Air Canada, whose flight attendants take their job title seriously. They gave the First Mate personal attention throughout the flight; we were actually a bit overwhelmed with their friendliness and hospitality. I'd recommend them highly if you travel to Canada.

We're staying downtown at the Sutton Place, a beautiful hotel and we're unpacking at the moment. (Actually and obviously, I'm goldbricking at the moment.) More later ...

UPDATE II: My outbound e-mail seems to be blocked, although I can receive e-mail and post at my blog just fine. I think it's got more to do with the e-mail servers than the network here. I'll keep working on it.
