Kevin Briand’s letter [Ed.: See “David Frum: Wayward Child,” below.] wondering how David Frum became David Frum struck a real chord for this Canadian.

Frum’s mother was a fine journalist with a wonderful presence. She was truly beloved.

Via this link you will find a CBC archive that includes many of her more memorable moments, including her interviews with Margaret Thatcher, Nelson Mandela, and Mordecai Richler.

I’m sure she’s spinning in her grave.
