Literary elegy to "a room with no view"

"A Room with a View" (1908) is an Edwardian social comedy and "A Room of One's Own" (1929) is a non fiction book written by Virginia Woolf to say that "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction".

On October 6th there are the Ontario eleccions, pity I cannot vote

This happened just 48 hours after King Abdullah announced to his Shura Council of advisers that henceforth wome
