It is getting tiring to deal with the notorious Queers Against Israeli Apartheid. They successfully disprove the carefully crafted myth that homosexuals are much smarter than the unwashed heterosexual masses.

The media behaved more like paparazzi tacking George Clooney than municipal affairs reporters, but the circus atmosphere died down after a couple of hours.
Ford was in fine form, good humored and professional as always in his role of Executive Committee Chairperson. The day also happened to be Ford’s 44th birthday and he seemed genuinely warmed by the felicitations he received for that…
