Random observations about Toronto

Toronto is quite possibly the most civilized city in North America. It certainly has the most civilized air travel. We bypassed Toronto Pearson International Airport, flying Porter Airlines instead into Toronto City Airport. The Bombadier Aerospace Q400 turbo prop, with a seating capacity of 75 passengers, and no middle seats, is remarkably comfortable. And because Porter flies hourly between Newark and Toronto, it is apparently never over-crowded. The city airport is located on an island, 121 feet by ferry from downtown Toronto.

I have never felt quite so welcome at a book event as I did last Wednesday night at PJ O’Briens Pub. The pub was filled with the nicest group of people, writing and reading the nastiest of crime fiction.

I even checked an elevator shaft for dead bodies.
