How I ended up in a cab on College Street with Robin Williams, peering out the window at the falling snow and singing along to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, I'll never exactly know.
Eventually, Mork, who's in town shooting a movie titled Man of the Year, ended up behind the bar taking orders from tickled patrons. I took the opportunity to do an impromptu Q&A.
"So, Mr. Williams," I asked, "what is your position on the Canadian election?"
"Stay Liberal!" he expounded with the speed of a stand-up.
"But our Conservatives are not the same as your conservatives," I rambled back.
"Yes, your Conservatives don't kill people," Williams shot back.
Robin Williams, after all, is a famous comedian, and David Wilkins is merely the American ambassador. Not difficult to see whose words should carry more weight with the chattering classes.
