In its heyday, the National Post had more columnists than opinions had assholes. No, that’s not how goes. Wait. “Opinions are like” — okay. Never mind. Let me start again. Suffice to say there were a lot of them. I suppose it was necessary, after all — they didn’t have all that much in the way of advertising to fill up the column inches — and it did make for some interesting reading. Now, after a whole pile of profit-making and pre-purposing under the Aspers, there are more ex-columnists from the Post than … I’ll just stop there. Anyway, Toro has reminiscences from five former Post columnists, via Inkless Wells — and I probably should have started and stopped there. But you know, you used to be able to make $80,000 a year writing like this.
