ROB FORD GAY PRIDE

Sunday Roundup: Life Is in the Earth

Happy Earth Day! I hope to spend today, ideally, puttering about my garden. Yes, we can all aspire to do something more high-minded, but even just beautifying your own patch of soil contributes to the pleasure of everyone around you (including even something as simple as a window box).Relaxing, too, will help me recover from what was truly an amazing week here at HuffPost -- and what promises to be another in the coming week. In home news, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney joined our editorial team on Wednesday for dinner -- and a no-holds-barred question session, including questions from our readers. You'll be impressed by his frankness.

Who Wants Ford at Pride Anyway?

For a second year in a row, Ford is not attending Toronto Pride. So what? If he did, it certainly would not make up for his quips about the HIV community. It would definitely not encourage anti-Fordists to change their minds for the next election. It would merely be a sign of Ford buckling under pressure by other council members, the press and the public. Does this sound like a worthwhile endeavour?
