ABSTRACT
The article comments on issues related to society and politics. It explains that the public in Canada had a sensational reaction to TV documentary films on the activities of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and the Soviet Union's KGB. It emphasizes that discussion at the United Nations General Assembly cannot be an effective way to settling international problems, as shown by the mistakes of U.S. Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter in negotiating with the Palestinian Liberation Organization. Lewis Lehrman is the choice of conservatives in New York to run for governor should U.S. Congressman Jack Kemp decides not to run for governor.
