SARS=sad 4 YYZ

As some of you know, I work for a major Toronto hotel. My department head has never seen occupancy plummet so far, so fast. A city-wide conference (American Association of Cancer Research) has cancelled, at enormous cost to the organization and to the city.

My observation for today: Australia’s travel warning about Toronto is out of sheer spite. We’re not on board with mother England on Iraq. You do the math.

And, for the first time since the fall of 2001, I’ll be going down to a 4-day workweek. Oh well–I’ll be able to watch Oprah’s inevitable SARS show.
