Altruism is a suspicious motivation. I don’t trust it in myself and I trust it less in others. Rocco is not an altruist. Let him just say so.

Rocco Rossi is entering October with a lot of work to do if he wants to become Mayor of Toronto. But there are reasons for Rossi supporters to be excited.
As a voter, if I were to learn that Rocco’s promises were more than the usual political bullshit, that they provided a real and tangible return, I would pay him a lot more attention. Make the numbers real and the emotion will follow.
“With only five weeks to go until election day, Mr. Ford has the backing of 45.8 per cent of decided voters, while former front-runner George Smitherman has the support of 21.3 per cent of decided voters. Joe Pantalone (16.8 per cent), Rocco Rossi (9.7 per cent) and Sarah Thomson (6.4 per cent) round out the top five contenders, according to a Nanos Research telephone poll of 1,021 Torontonians conducted between Sept. 14 and Sept. 16.”
I thought that if I was going to attend this debate, I might as well bring the notebook and note items of interest. Let’s see what happens.
The debate starts with 5 minutes by each of the candidates.
George starts with a Salaam Aleichem, Eid Mubarek. I will let you know if he says anything that cannot be found on his web site.
