I got kind of sick of the Rob Ford stuff, too over-the-top, too much of a cross between Justin Bieber and Nickelback. But when I started to hear that he might have a chance at re-election…just think of the Slate article “Why Rob Ford is North America’s Greatest Politician”. It sounds like his chances aren’t great, admittedly, but I came across this morning and thought “there’s that number again”:
Depending on who you ask, Ford has the hard-core support of between 20 percent and 35 percent of Torontonians.
What number is halfway between 20 and 35? This constant crosses national borders, even though they’ve got the metric system.
