ON PARLIAMENT HILL the other day, somebody asked a Liberal senator: “What’s this trouble in the Liberal Party?” Replied the senator: “The trouble with the Liberal Party is that Mackenzie King reads Browning, while ‘Mitch’ Hepburn reads Chester Walters and the Toronto Globe and Mail.”

Not one of those hit-and-miss, eaten-on-the-run snacks which don’t even deserve the name of breakfast, but an honest-to-goodness meal and a decent amount of time to enjoy it.
