Tabloid Journalism?

Anyone working within range of a U.S. television signal last Friday was hardly tabloid-challenged. There was revulsion about deeds born of greed and mendacity, yet there was the irresistible lure of inexplicable acts committed by ordinary men and women, the kind of people who might live next door.

Kenneth Umpherville was a 26-year-old sergeant with the Canadian Army in 1957 when he travelled with his platoon into the desert near Las Vegas, Nev., to take part in a battlefield exercise under the shadow of a nuclear explosion. Umpherville and 40 other members of the Calgary-based Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada huddled in trenches just over a kilometre from ground zero when scientists detonated an atomic bomb.

Some of the most difficult moments for political leaders occur when they leave the country. In 1979, gaffes and misstatements by Joe Clark turned a world tour, designed to raise his stature, into a public relations nightmare. Brian Mulroney returned home from a 1986 trip to Asia to a government steeped in scandal after his industry minister, Sinclair Stevens, was accused of influence peddling.

Bernard Caron is a frightened man. After 24 years cutting the hair of MPs (at $6.42, GST included) the House of Commons barber now finds himself the unlikely focus of a political squabble about the worth of parliamentarians. As he nears retirement, the last thing Caron wants is to make things worse for himself by shooting off his mouth.

For novice members of Parliament wondering what awaits them this week when the House of Commons begins sitting, Commons clerk Robert Marleau was pleased to offer enlightenment. At the start of a daylong session last week devoted to explaining to rookie MPs how Parliament functions, Marleau quoted Plato’s description of democracy as “a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder, and dispensing a sort of equality to equals and unequals alike.”

Canadians are becoming increasingly enthusiastic about RRSPs! According to Statistics Canada, we've already invested over $200 billion in RRSPs, and this number is expected to reach $500 billion by the year 2000. In fact, according to Wendy Brennan, senior product manager of retail deposits at National Trust, "many of our customers who started building their RRSPs in their 30s and 40s now have a substantial portfolio to administer, and an explosion of options and products has grown to meet their demands."

RRSPs are one of the best tax breaks around. For every $1,000 you contribute into your plan, you could get half or more of it back as a tax refund (depending on the province you live in and your marginal tax bracket). For the rest of your working life, that entire $1,000 can compound taxfree.

On the serpentine mountain road that climbs northeast from the 16th-century southern Mexican tourist town of San Cristóbal de las Casas, only 125 km from the Guatemalan border, the vistas are the stuff of travel agents’ dreams. Steep pine forests drop to gorges of awesome beauty, where Maya villages stud the riverbanks with adobe huts painted bright pink, purple and turquoise.

Since taking office in 1988, Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari has worked tirelessly to convince international investors that his country is a safe place to do business. His efforts appear to have paid off: even this month’s uprising in southern Chiapas state, and subsequent bombings in Mexico City and the resort centre of Acapulco, have not shaken confidence in his ability to maintain order.

When he packed his bags for Moscow last week, Bill Clinton left behind an item that has helped to make recent U.S.-Russia summits highly successful: a chequebook. Unwilling to pledge any new financial aid on top of money that has already been promised, the President could offer little more than moral support for Russia’s painful economic transition from communism.

Humor defines a nation’s psyche. Because we prefer to laugh rather than cry, Canada has spawned more than its share of good comedians. Being Canadian has always had a wry side to it, like being Albanian or bi-emotional—nobody quite knows what’s involved, but it sounds slightly off-the-wall and endlessly intriguing.

"We’re off to talk to Hitler’s ghost,” says Alfred Kerndl, bounding across the muddy wasteland of central Berlin where Europe’s dividing wall once stood. Kerndl, a jaunty 64-year-old, is Berlin’s chief archeologist, and the map in his hands shows the location of the bunker where Adolf Hitler conducted Germany’s last days of the Second World War in 1945 and where he shot himself to death just ahead of advancing Russian troops.
