McCain Sees Troops Coming Home by 2013

"When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around,
Heaven opens a magic lane.

When all the clouds darken up the skyway,
There's a rainbow highway to be found,
Leading from your window pane
To a place beyond the sun,
Just a step beyond the rain...


Somewhere over the rainbow,
way up high,
There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby."

Taser me This

Good for Solicitor-General John van Dongen for ordering the Transclunk goons to appear before the Braidwood inquiry on tasers.

Who are these people that they initially refused to show?

This illustrates the problem of an organization like Translink that would like to be answerable to no one, least of all the public.

Van Dongen in his short and sudden tenure as SG has shown moxy and toughness.

More! More!

Quitting on Top. Good for Her

Why did anyone call Justine henin's retirement "shocking?"

Annika Sorenstam has announced that she is shortly to retire from competetive golf, a world she has similarly conquered.

Tennis is wonderful, I love it, I play it, I watch it, but is it all of life?

So Henin wants to move on and do other things and be a complete person. This is shocking?

There is only one place to go when you're number one.

I applaud her.

Now that's Citizenship

An 18 year old in Surrey is running for election to city council.

And why not?

Could he do any worse than most councilors in most municipalities? Hardly.

Read the story and email him your encouragement.
