today, I took comfort in banksy's rat

Banksy was in Toronto and left us with a few gifts. This rat is probably the smallest. It is on Phoebe Street, just off Spadina, in Chinatown. Today when all hell was breaking loose, the rat was there, right around the corner. I kept thinking of Banksy's guy with the bandana over his mouth, throwing flowers, because there were a lot of covered faces. But no flowers.

Yes, Banksy travels my fish friend. I thought of you today and of the many political discussions we had. Today, Toronto was a riot. Cars burning. Peaceful people beaten and arrested. Banksy left this because he knew the G20 was coming to Toronto. I spent the day about a block from his rat. I wish there was humour in the world.

I never saw things like I saw today. I have not been so afraid in a long time. The only bonus were the international photographers. The Getty guy was very kind to me and let me travel with him. I still don't know his name.

I am sorry too. It's a great city and our prime minister hates it. He's from oil country out west, and we eastern bleeding hearts just needed to be totally humiliated and beaten.

I don't take flowers on demos but I always take polo mints, with which I suborn police horses.
