In case you missed it this morning, HERE is Vaughn Palmer's nail-on-the-head column on Christy Clark and Sukh Dhaliwal.

The key paragraph is this:

He [Dhaliwal] did shirk his responsibility to disclose his legal difficulties to press, party and the electorate alike until he got caught out publicly, a point the Liberals themselves made in their Friday morning press release.

The one politically incorrect issue that never gets mentioned in reports of this on-going cheesy melodrama is that Mr. D's sole contribution to Canadian life is that he can deliver busloads of voters - many of whom have no idea what it is exactly that they are so enthusiastically supporting.

But not to despair, kids.

A page or two later, The Sun advises us that construction has begun in the Okanagan on an amazing new radio telescope.

"It's almost like time travel," said Kris Sigurdson, an astrophysicist from UBC and co-investigator on the project. "It's looking back into the past and how the universe was at that time."

Sigurdson said scientists know the universe is expanding, but they don't know why. They are also trying to learn more about the composition of "dark energy," which makes up about 70 per cent of the universe.

They could have saved themselves a lot of money by training their eye on the legislature and on Parliament - dark energy galore!
