Thank God for the United States of America
Carl Brewer after U.S. prosecutors took on Alan Eagleson

What is it's drawing clouds of Toronto media to the Conrad Black trial in a grubby little Chicago courtroom? The stink of venerable Toronto Bay Street-style-shenanigans U.S. lawmakers ended 100 years ago? The spectacle of Toronto Rosedale society lawyer Eddie (in Rosedalespeak, "Edward ... Q. C., all quaffed and gowned and full of precedents") Greenspan fowling up - allowing His Lordship to cross the U.S. border into dangerously democratic waters teaming with real-life prosecutors? No, it is the hope that maybe, just maybe, Black or Rosedale or Greenspan or Black's wife, Lady Long-Tooth, will make it to the front page of the New York Times - in Toronto - especially in Rosedale - that'll be the story of the year - making it to the front page of the New York Times - the flies are swarming in hopes of feeding the great inferiority complex that is Toronto.

If the truth be known, and this according to Black's son, Jonathan, a male model who tried to trade on Black's nonexistent fame, no one in New York or in any of the United States has heard of Black, or Lady Long-Tooth, or of Greenspan or even Rosedale. To the great American unwashed - is Toronto a world-class city? In the minds of the American Boobosie, Toronto's harbour is filled with ice bergs and polar bears, its suburbs with igloos; Toronto's inhabitants eek out a living, not as Officers, Members and Companions of the Order of Canada, but as hewers of wood and drawers of water. Meantime, His Venerable Lordship - if the truth be known, a ham actor - lives in the delusion that the grubby little courtroom in in Chicago is a world stage. In fact it plays host to a provincial vaudeville act where his fallen Mightyship will be pelted with rotten eggs and dragged off to an obscure U.S. penitentiary.
