From the Dregs to the Highest Heights of Society

Robert Pickton got his today. Conrad Black receives his tomorrow. The lowly, dim pig farmer/serial killer and the guy who had it all, and more, but never enough.

Back to back. Sunday and Monday. While Lord Black's crimes cannot begin to rival the heinous butchery of Pickton, both have fallen with the thud of a gallow's trap door. Pickton's fall, however, doesn't entirely eclipse Black's if only because Black is falling from such great height.

What a week. Look at Canada's newsmakers this week - Baird, Pickton, Black, Mulroney. What a week we'll have to look back on.
