Giving hubris a bad name

In the past few days, I have seen or read the following:

  • Bill Clinton and Martha Stewart talk earnestly about how the compact fluorescent light can save the planet;
  • Nelson Mandela open a shopping mall in Soweto;
  • Conrad Black tape a guest appearance on the Rick Mercer Report.

Do any of these events seem like the trivialization of former greatness, or am I just joining in on the triviality by even taking note?

  1. Thank you so much for the positive feedback on Andrew Waite’s Crop exhibiti fopr Nuit Blanche at PRIME Gallery and I do hope you get a chance to see the current installation of Crop, on now until november 15th in the Mediterranean Garden of the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington.

    One minor, albeit important detail, the gallery on McCaul is PRIME Gallery, although we do take Pride in representing a wonderful and diverse range of artwork by Canadian artists young and old.
