And for once, considering the geographically different nature of this
column, not only time matters, but place as well: It was on This
Day in History that Frederick Banting and Charles Best successfully
insulin. As significant as that discovery may have been, it's not really
the sort of event that I refer to in my tie-in date links. Ah, but they
did it right here in Toronto, Ontario. They, of course were at home at
the time, but I suppose that it's only fitting that I make use of what
is for me a very different home in order to make my date connection.
After all, this time, both time and place matter. However, lest
this addition cause concern among my readers, I can assure you that not
being much of a traveller, there is only a very limited danger of my continuing
to find place connections in the future.
