You may need the whole weekend to catch up on everything I've done this week... I'm getting tired here just summarizing it. The Friday signed column for the Post is a plea for executive clemency in the Marc Emery extradition case. (As is usual when I write about such subjects, the online notices have been exceedingly favourable and the personal e-mail has been illiterate and vituperative.) A post-Iowa editorial I wrote for Saturday's paper is viewable at the Full Comment page. Here's another Full Comment entry pointing to a New Yorker article I liked. And I also popped up at the American Spectator website this week with a look back at the ever-spreading effect of the Mitchell Report on performance-enhancing substances in baseball. Which, in turn, spawned an interesting comment thread over at the Baseball Think Factory.
