John Stuart Mill, the English philosopher, once wrote "the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community against his will is to prevent harm to others.” Almost 150 years later, we still struggle with that.

THE EXCERPT from Mark Steyn’s book America Alone (“The new world order,” World, Oct. 23) is an eye-opener to the future. Finally someone has the cojones to face facts, instead of playing the ostrich as so many of our Western leaders and policy-makers do.

Last week, when Madonna announced her intention to adopt David Banda, a one-year-old Malawian boy, the child’s father, Yohane, publicly supported the arrangement and asked critics intent on challenging the process to back off. On Monday, however, Banda, who is illiterate and speaks no English, said he had not realized he would be relinquishing his child “for good.”

On the day it was announced that MP Garth Turner was being ousted from the Tory caucus, the Hill media were out in full force ready to descend on Conservative MPs who would speak their mind about MPs speaking their minds. While most of the Conservatives were able to quickly scurry out of the House after Question Period to avoid the press, one Tory was an easy target: Ontario MP Peter Van Loan (York-Simcoe) is currently on crutches.

The blackmail has already begun. On the weekend, the Quebec wing of the federal Liberal party passed a resolution calling for Quebec to be recognized as a nation within Canada. Not a “distinct society”—a nation. “A veritable revolution in the federalist philosophy of Pierre Trudeau’s heirs,” André Pratte wrote in La Presse.

Happy is the land whose parliament can tussle over whether or not the foreign minister called his ex-girlfriend and Tory traitor a “dog” during the normal heckling taken for debate in liberal democracies. “Chilling,” said Belinda Stronach as she rose to “demand” an apology for the use of (maybe) the dog word.

Q: When you were Ontario health minister from 2001 to 2003, you called for more federal funding. Now you're the federal minister of health and you don't want to give the provinces any more money. What’s changed? A: I am conscious of the irony. But there’s been a big change: the 2004 health accord that was agreed to by all of the provinces and the prime minister of the day, Paul Martin.

INSIDE THE MIND OF STEPHEN HARPER
How an impatient novice learned to play the game—and take power

PAUL WELLS
STEPHEN HARPER IS HARD TO KNOW. EVER since he became the young policy director of the Reform party after its founding convention in 1987, and especially after he and 51 other Reform candidates won their tickets to Ottawa in the 1993 election, Harper had been like those floaters that appear in your field of vision on a bright sunshiny day.

JOHN GEDDES
Of the major initiatives taken so far by Stephen Harper’s government, the clean air act sparked the most derisive reaction. Environment Minister Rona Ambrose released it last week to criticism from environmental groups and opposition politicians, pundits and political cartoonists—most mocking her for setting far-off 2050 as the target year for cutting Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions roughly in half.

If you told me I’d soon be pushing my last breath, I’d take the opportunity to say what I said because it is the truth.

Saddam Hussein knows how he wants to die. Blindfolded, tied to a post before a firing squad, perhaps with the stub of one last Cuban cigar clenched between his teeth. The clichéd end of B-movie heroes and Third World tyrants. And a finish that speaks to his deepest insecurities.

Protect me against senseless bravado and pride.”

Many men who find themselves bored with retirement pick up a hobby. Paul Reichmann decided to launch a US$4-billion investment company. Last month, less than two years after he supposedly walked away from the business, the restless 76-year-old patriarch of Canada’s most prominent real estate clan announced the formation of that new enterprise, PR Capital.

August Voegl, 59, an Austrian roofer, was hard at work last week, carrying a compressed-air nail gun. But when he suddenly slipped on a roof, Vogel accidentally fired a four-inch nail through one of his testicles. It not only impaled the organ, but fastened it securely to the roof, requiring emergency personnel to separate him from the roof before airlifting him to hospital.

It was dubbed the “geek syndrome” epidemic: a huge surge in the number of children diagnosed with autism in California throughout the ’90s. State caseloads more than tripled between 1993 and 2001, and numbers were especially high in Santa Clara County, the heart of Silicon Valley.

Chocolate contains polyphenol which, spa director Tomoko Mitanda says, can delay the effects of aging. The “bath” actually consists of a paste of chocolate and magnesium, which is smeared on women’s bodies while they lie on massage tables.

The head of the 37-year-old Marie Antoinette, queen of France, was parted from her shoulders 213 years ago in the Place de la Concorde. The executioner held it up by its thinned and whitened hair for the amusement of the rabble. Earlier that day, she had been forced to change into a white shift in front of the gendarmerie—lest her black prison dress be construed as mourning.

An unexpected windstorm ripped up the terrace of a Hollywood house he was renting. The storm smashed the dining room during a dinner party, causing candles to ignite a fire. The disaster convinced Everett, now 47, to give up cooking altogether.

The Man in White was written by the Man in Black, Johnny Cash, in 1986. The novel, and its afterword by Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, shows how deeply the American singer, tortured by his recurrent drug problems, identified with the stormy life of Paul, who often mentioned his own, unspecified “thorn in the flesh.”

On Oct. 10, the owners of YouTube announced that they’d sold their successful video-sharing service to Google for US$1.65 billion. What was unusual about that was that Google already had a service, Google video, which provided exactly the same service as YouTube, allowing people to upload and view video files.

Fashion’s power lies in its ability to lend anything it touches— sullenness, heroin, Jessica Simpson—a sheen of desirability. The more far-fetched the challenge, the greater the glory. So perhaps it was only a matter of time before fashion cast its transformative eye on the seedy and exceptionally lucrative world of sex toys.

He reworks a couple of his own tracks, breathing new life into Rainy Day Hotel and We Don’t Run.

A ruler who drew no distinction between “red” science and alchemy, Rudolph employed many of the leading intellectuals in Europe, from Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe to English magus John Dee.

William L. Crain II was born on March 25, 1971, in the tiny farming community of Walnut Grove, Mo. (pop. 626)—the kind of place where kids are put to work as soon as they can reach the pedals on a tractor. He grew up on a dairy farm, run by his father William, who also worked for 36 years with the Dairy Farmers of America, and his mother Sherry, who now works in a nearby high school.
