The Globe T.O. talks with Edward Keenan about Mayor Ford, Toronto, fistfights

Following the verdict on Mayor Rob Ford's appeal, it seemed like everyone was keen to talk to Edward Keenan about his new book, Some Great Idea: Good Neighbourhoods, Crazy Politics and the Invention of Toronto. In the Globe and Mail's Toronto section on Saturday, January 26, columnist Marcus Gee asked him a few questions about his book, Mayor Ford and getting punched in the face (for real). A few excerpts from the interview follow:

We both cover city hall. How do you find it?

It sure beats working for a living. No, but I've had a lot less fun in jobs. There is great material every day. The characters are riveting to write about. I think you said it was the best political reporting gig in the country right now, and I think I agree with you about that. But as a citizen, I find it frustrating and depressing sometimes, when the clown show takes over.
