How to Fill 12 Inches of Newsprint

1.  Keep a tickle trunk.  (That's where you stuff stories that, at any given moment, can be pulled out and feel current.)

2.  Reach into tickle trunk, blindfolded.

3.  Take story out and publish.

It is a stunning result.  If someone asked me whether Canadians preferred peacekeeping to combat, I would have said "combat" in a second.  My guess would have been that Canadians like the idea of carnage on the battlefield; maimed soldiers; collateral damage.

Turns out I was exactly wrong: Canadians would prefer our military to run peacekeeping operations.

Thank you, Globe and Mail, for giving me the news I need.
