Canada has a knack for offering good things slightly before the United States does (universal health care, women’s suffrage, Catherine O’Hara). And now INSTANT: here’s a lovely story in The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national paper of record.  Pleasant interview, a reporter named Kate Taylor who took time to double-check the complex bits (and thus has them right), and a stylebook that still requires “Mr” before names in arts stories, a convention that’s softened even at the New York Times. Couldn’t ask for a nicer introduction to the Great White North.

    What a delicious item to add to Saturday’s breakfast on a Labor Day weekend. Kate Taylor’s preview is insightful and civilized, and her backstory about the Whitney exhibit is something I did not know about the genesis of your project, Mr. Bonanos. It made me smile to read how she corrects you: “ ‘…and by that time [Mr.] Land was gone,’ Mr. Bonanos says.”
    I think I may change my own stylebook back to that civilized standard. (May I call you “Chris,” Mr. Bonanos?)

      I’m used to being addressed “Hey, you,” or occasionally “Yeah, you, buddy” so I’ll take “Mister” when it’s offered. Thanks for the boosts, as always, Bill!
