“Perhaps we should congratulate Mr. Harper for so quickly curing himself of his propensity to micro-manage. Well done, sir! Should we be on the lookout for other miracles?”

“"...no two floors of the towers are the same.." sounds like a great way to increase engineering complexity and cost. I thought great architecture was supposed to be a balanced blend of aesthetics, functionality, and practicality. I've seen some beautiful, innovative designs that still incorporate practicality, but designers these days seem a bit too focused on trying to out-do each other with strange shapes, while ignoring or paying lip-service to the practical aspects.”

“Methinks (the banks) doth protest too much (with apologies to Shakespeare). While it can be said that we don't have the level of toxic mortgages and fraudulent foreclosures that the US banks created, we do have the risk of new buyers ending up 'over their heads' when interest rates inevitably rise.”

“our bank bail out of $165 billion + that we know of is the equivalent of $1.65 trillion in the US. Their economy is roughly ten times ours.”

“There are two ways to respond to competitive threats: (1) Innovate aggressively to provide a more attractive, better-quality offering, or (2) Do what everybody else is doing, and cut quality in order to cut costs. Option #2 just results in a downward spiral, as quality journalism is inevitably the first to go, and it appears that was the Sun's choice. I would have been happy to pay for an on-line subscription if the quality of journalism, and general content, had made it worth the money. BTW, if HuffPost tries to charge for its content, it will have to do something about its quality as well.”

“Left-wing dogma adds absolutely no real value for Canadians. Right-wing dogma adds absolutely no real value for Canadians. We need governments who can focus on things that actually matter, like logic-based decision-making and ethics. Political dogma is an abomination that is rapidly destroying democracy.”

“In peer-reviewed research, it appears that Tartrazine, the key component of Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 causes intolerance or allergy issues in some people, but I couldn't find any peer-reviewed references to it being carcinogenic. Quoting bloggers, rather than qualified researchers is pretty sloppy journalism.”

Lisa Nazarko Fife on Apr 10, 2013 at 14:57:48

“Well all artificial colours are petroleum (coal tar) based.
So not sure how much proof you need whether they could be carcinogenic.
Not sure why anyone wants to consume chemicals.”
