So a reporter from the Toronto Star recently contacted Paul Elam of A Voice for Men to ask him about the harassment and threats received by several student protesters at the University of Toronto after Elam and his associates identified and vilified them online, both on AVFM and on its bogus “offenders registry” called Register-Her . (You can read more about the harassment here, here and here; here’s the school’s official statement condemning the threats.)

Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, born on this day in 1903 (April 3, 1903), should be remembered today for drawing attention to the revival and promotion of India’s rich and varied art and crafts, for championing of women’s rights, and as a social reformer, a fearless and committed freedom fighter and revolutionary.

An obsession with news generally and newspapers in particular started when I was around fourteen or fifteen.I would purchase a newspaper to read on the tram on my way to work and “The Herald” on my way home. When I grew older on Saturday nights I was at the news agency to buy the pink paper, the “Sporting Globe” to see if my name was in the sports columns. And as a teenage boy I confess to buying the odd copy of “The Truth” to satisfy my raging hormones. And I grew up with the familiar musical introduction to the ABC news. So news in all its mediums has formed a major part of the essence of my life and for the most part I trusted what it told me.
Those were the times when politics…
