Not there and don't know if they will have TVs but Husk on Queen St. is very nice. Cheers
I've spent the morning trying to articulate why Mr. Obama's statement seemed so off to me and now it is done. The president is so keen on making sure that we know he feels someone's pain that he has to hypothesize a child he doesn't have. There is tragedy and pain in this story, but the president (and frankly almost everyone else in this vast land) are certainly not feeling it. It is pandering to universalize this story.
A friend of mine travels there frequently when he is on leave from duties in Afghanistan . . . I think that speaks volumes.
I'm a veteran and i am it annoyed when I hear people say "we cannot do enough for our veterans." we can do too much and certainly too much that does little. My guess is that this tax break will have no measurable effect on the lives of vets generally and certainly none on those who have been most profoundly effected by the wars we ask them to fight (I.e. those wounded and maimed by the wars). If this tax break would help those . . . Press on - but it won't. As suggested by others it will only help those in office continue in that profession.
