In yesterday's Globe and Mail Report on Business, there's a story on the Federal Reserve Board's stimulus plan on pages one and two and a review on the XBox Kinect Control System on page two. If I measure, I find that the hard news story takes just a little bit more space and does, after all, start on page one. Still, if the Globe and Mail thinks that surviving in the newspaper business means running reviews about toys, even toys used by rich men, in the business section, then may be survival is all you achieve.

On the other hand, I only buy the weekend Globe and Mail, and if there wasn't a cryptic crossword by Fraser Simpson, I wouldn't buy it at all. So who cares what I think?
