Heath's Director

An excellent short piece in Newsweek from Christopher Nolan, the director of the new Batman movie on Heath Ledger. This was recommended by our commentor, Ronnie:

Back to the LIberals? Save us! Save us!

The Sun is on this morning about Stephen Harper's possible "secret agenda."

I neither like nor dislike Mr. Harper. I certainly have not leapt to autpilotly demonizing him because a)he is the prime Minister, b) he's a Conservative, c) he's a white, middle-aged slightly pudgy male (Although I do believe that makes him immediately qualified for News Anchor or talk show host.)

I think he is being a perfectly reasonable, dull manager of the state. Which is fine with me. Pay the bills and be quiet.


What am I supposed to do with this brilliant analysis of Harper? Run to the safe warm harbor and bosom of THE LIBERALS???

Does anyone in Editorial Land have a memory?

*** WARNING ***

The video posted below - Ornette Coleman - is not for the faint of heart or slow morning riser.

It is loud, it is pounding, it is jazz, it is Ornette, it is great.

Good luck.
