Your cover story on the Royal Ontario Museum and its display of the so-called James ossuary was intriguing (“Cash box,” March 28). But whether or not the box was real, I believe that artifacts owned by private collectors or artifacts dealers should never be put on display, and certainly not as a centrepiece of a blockbuster exhibition.

It’s hard to imagine the absolute panic that must have raced through the coastal communities of Southeast Asia early last week. Here it was just three months after the devastating Boxing Day tsunami—nearly 300,000 dead or missing—and once again the earth was moving to an offshore quake of similar magnitude.

THERE WERE NO INQUISITIONS, no holy crusades, no emperors kneeling in the snow. But when John Paul II took the stage in Warsaw on a sunny day in June 1979, he was challenging an empire as surely as medieval pontiffs grappled with the secular powers of their age.

‘HE STOPPED THE DRIFT IN THE CHURCH’
For the Pope, traditional values were all-important

JONATHON GATEHOUSE
FORTY-FIVE YEARS AGO, a densely written treatise on love and marriage by a young Polish bishop was enough to raise eyebrows in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. The then little-known Karol Wojtyla’s argument that sex was a divine gift meant for mutual pleasure, not just procreation, was a leap in theology for an institution that had long tended to divide earthly life between duties and “shall-nots.”

FOR CANADIANS outside Quebec, the province’s language laws can appear complex at best, offensive at worst. Yet there is a sort of calm surrounding the current rules, and last week Premier Jean Charest had to be thankful that the Supreme Court of Canada didn’t upset that precarious balance too much.

VOLUNTEER VACATION, working holiday, voluntouring—aren’t all those terms oxymorons? Whatever the name, travel with a focus on altruism is a small but growing segment of the tourism industry. The phenomenon is a step beyond ecotourism, where the goal is to do no harm; the aim here is to do good.

SHAREHOLDERS BE GLAD, your grumbling has been heard in the halls of corporate Canada. No longer are executives free to feast on fat paycheques and stacks of stock options while lowly investors are left to nibble on table scraps. According to a new study by consulting firm Watson Wyatt, most top executives today are being paid according to the quality of their work and the returns they produce for the shareholders.

It’s a question the Xantrex Powerpack was born to address. Xantrex Technology Inc. of Burnaby, B.C., produces an ever-expanding line of these devices, about the size and price of a small boom box.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT CANADIANS and marathons? From Terry Fox’s legendary trek to Marilyn Bell’s swim across Lake Ontario, nothing unites us quite like a feat of endurance. In this country, the ultimate triumph is not winning a race but bridging what looks like an insurmountable distance, as if we’re all still building the railroad, trying to wrestle endless space down to a human scale.

No one makes a comedy of manners with the finesse of the French-at least when they get it right. Look at Me (Comme Une Image) gets it wonderfully right. This exceptional film bears a passing resemblance to Sideways. Set against the publishing scene, it’s an ensemble piece that focuses on a quartet of characters whose lives are a tangle of art and ego, celebrity and insecurity.

RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE, the world has shrunk to the size of your fist. Consider: In 2003,25,000 U.S. income-tax returns were completed in India. In 2004, the number was 100,000 and this year it will probably be 400,000. If you’re an accountant who makes a pleasant living doing routine tax work, that’s the sound of your market going away.
