Slow down

Seriously, Canada, be cool. First with the mix tape, now with this weird starry-eyed stalking? (Oh, please, CBC, do not change the photo at the top of that story, because OMG!!!!1!) Canada, he's the head of state of a rival nation - if he starts to realize we have a huge crush on him, he's going to exploit that, and soon we'll be doing his homework and staying in Afghanistan until 2017.

Then again, he does seem more interested in protecting the rights of Canadians than certain Prime Ministers I could mention. But still.

Alt Music Friday

One of the first blogs ever to link me was published under the title "My City is Still Breathing", but it was years later before I first heard the Weakerthans song the title was lifted from. Since then, I've grown very fond of the band. How can you not love lyrics with this much curling talk?

Party before country

Micheal Ignatieff, yesterday:
I decided to permit [the Newfoundland and Labrador Liberal MPs] in the budget vote tonight a one-time vote of protest to signal their displeasure and my displeasure at these unilateral actions which, in my view, weaken our federation, cause strains in our federation at a time when Canadians should be pulling together.
And then the part that wasn't in the papers:
However, the rest of the Liberal party will vote for the budget, because weakening the federation might be a bad thing, but even worse would be weakening the Liberal party through leading a coalition government, or forcing an election. Expect to see this caucus find other creative ways of expressing our unhappiness with this government that don't involve actually doing anything about it over the next several months.
Or was that part just subtext?
