Black out!

Conrad Black has been released (for now) from prison after a Supreme Court ruling that the law under which he was charged was vague.  Black is the most infamous, and controversial, Canadian of the 21st century - and arguably the last as well.  Although I often disagree with his views, we both share a few things: being Montrealers; being debaters when young; and having an interest in Nixon.  Indeed, after I wrote a positive review of his Nixon biography, Black sent an email saying no other reviewer had understood the book as well.  I though the book brilliantly stylish.  Hopefully Black will write more.
