I wish the Globe & Mail would run that smear piece about me after all

I’d love to see what the “slug” would be, so I could frame it and put it over my computer as the sympathy donations poured into my PayPal — like they’re doing with Rob Ford right about now.



The (entertainment, merchandising and never-ending publicity) possibilities are endless.

Right now, hundreds of young and not-so-young people across the country are working to finish some assignment for their university “Journalism” course.

“Did you know that Stephen Marche, who wrote that ‘Rob Ford is a fatty fatty fat fat’ piece, is Robert Fulford’s son-in-law?

“Married to Sarah, editor of Toronto Life’”

And here’s… Lesson Two.
