Excerpt from Clarkson's Tell-All

Outgoing Governor General Adrienne Clarkson is poised to write a tell-all book about her life and times as Canada's highest spending Governor General.

Here's a likely excerpt:
"Oh, you should have seen Paul's (Martin) face when I told him over dinner at Rideau Hall that I was taking 50 of my closest friends with me on a "state visit" to Europe, I thought he was going to choke on his glass of 1945 Chateau Petrus Bordeaux.

I told him if he even thought about cutting my budget I was going to call the Queen. Well that settled that. I have no doubt he remembers the tongue lashing Jean (Chretien) got from Her Majesty when they started stocking my powder room with two-ply instead of three-ply."

Rumor has it she will be receiving a $250,000 advance for her book. Perhaps our government could impose a "Former Governor General book writing tax" of say...90%. That way taxpayers might be able to recoup a few of the dollars she wasted.
