    There is nothing in it on gay issues. He speaks to pluralism and respecting diversity on our planet. Have to say that Kahn is the leader I would most like to emulate. Was good to see Canadian leaders...

    Gistok - the east bay is not original (it isn't in the earliest photo) and my suspicion is that the third floor of the wall extending south from the north west tower isn't either. I think all of the...
