Forty-six years later those words still ring true: there has since been no book that has brought to life early Calgary the way that Eye Opener Bob does. Perhaps more importantly, it's the closest we'll ever get to Robert Chambers Edwards-Eye Opener Bob -the irrepressible editor of Calgary's most singular newspaper, and the city's most singular denizen. Bob Edwards was a true Canadian original, the prototypical hard-drinking, pull-no-punches editor of the Calgary Eye Opener-at the time the largest paper between Vancouver and Toronto, with a circulation of over 30,000 copies. A paper with the power to elect or dethrone governments, to bring the mighty CPR to reform its ways, and to skewer the pretensions of society like few before or since. Eye Opener Bob brings this fascinating character to life in all his glorious self-contradictions. MacEwan arrived in the city at just the right time to write Eye Opener Bob-the old Sandstone City hadn't yet been whitewashed over by the new money from the Leduc gusher, and there were still living people who had known Edwards. MacEwan ferreted out their stories as only he could do, combined the interviews with hard research, and the result is Grant MacEwan's best book by a country mile. Eye Opener Bob can be enjoyed on its own or as a companion piece to the new compilation of Edwards's writing, Irresponsible Freaks, Highball Guzzlers, and Unabashed Grafters: A Bob Edwards Chrestomathy.
My motivation for writing this text was to provide Small Business Enterprises (SMEs) with holistic, integrative view of Marketing and Business Project Management. A holistic view focuses on how Marketing and Business Project Management contribute to strategic goals of an organization. The linkages for integration include the process selecting Marketing strategies and projects that best support the strategy of a particular organization and that in turn can be supported by the technical and managerial processes made available by the organization to bring projects to completion. In the face of intense, worldwide competition many organizations have reorganized around a philosophy of innovation, renewal, and organizational learning to survive. This philosophy suggests an organization that is flexible and project driven.
Albert Samson is ecstatic when he finally gets his private investigator's license back. It's taken years and he's been through some very low times. But now the worst is over, at last. And within days he has a couple of cases. Granted, one is a freebie, investigating vandalism at a neighbourhood church. But the other is the best-paying job he's ever had. He's working for lawyers defending a man accused of terrifying Indianapolis women for years. Well, everyone's entitled to a defence. The only snag is that the arresting officer on the case was Samson's childhood friend, now a captain in the Indy police. Well, never mind. It was, after all, this 'friend' who cost Samson his license in the first place. As Samson investigates both cases, he is led into territory far beyond what at first appears likely. And he involves some unlikely helpers, including his mother and his daughter - now all growed up and thinking about her own future. One possibility would be to join the detective agency, making it Samson & Daughter.
Bob Edwards, the Great White North's equivalent to H. L. Mencken, remains a singular figure in Canadian journalism. His newspapers, published in Wetaskiwin, Leduc, High River, Strathcona, Winnipeg, Port Arthur, and most famously Calgary, skewered politics, society, and business leaders with a fearlessness and outrageousness rarely seen then, now, or in between. As editor James Martin points out in his illuminating introduction, Bob Edwards seems more modern the farther back in history he recedes; he was the granddaddy of Gonzo Journalism à la Hunter S. Thompson, a freewheeling cultural critic in the spirit of Lester Bangs, a pioneer of satirical reform as evidenced in Frank magazine, and a spoofer of the po-faced reporting of his day in precisely the same way that The Onion is now. Irresponsible Freaks, Highball Guzzlers and Unabashed Grafters features mountains of Edwards's superb aphorisms, a generous helping of his longer and lesser-known works, and some choice items which have never before seen print, as well as miraculous archival discoveries and many cartoons from Edwards's celebrated Eye Opener. It is a welcome addition to the Bob Edwards canon for those who thought they knew everything about him, and an eye-opening introduction to the uninitiated: "He was writing this stuff a hundred years ago!"
