Musings —01.03.2011 10:07 AM—
I’m at my desk, this morning, but – based on the drive-in, and a survey of the streets – it doesn’t look like many others are. Whassup, Terranna?
Anyway. Here’s a roundup of some of my blogroll. Good reading, all.
- Powers: Politically, says Timmo, Excitement is moving to the provinces in 2011. Personally, I heard the Excitements left for the States a couple years ago, when their Dad got transferred with his job.
- Far and Wide: Steve V. calls for a cultural change in the Liberal Party, bottom to top. He says that’s the only thing that’ll make it relevant. He’s right, of course. It will also never happen. Carry on as you were.
- Big City Lib: My brother Mike continues to poke fun at my media employer, noting that a grocery store is now our neighbour. Could’ve been worse. Could’ve been a Victoria’s Secret. I mean, can you imagine?
- GritChik: She’s got a review of her year in blogging. Always interesting to see what folks find interesting. In my case, the all-time winner had nothing to do with politics. It was the now-legendary Kraft Dinner post.
- Bourrie: He hasn’t posted since October. Anyone know if his site has gone 404 or not?
- Spector: Norman says it won’t be so easy for the Reformatories to simply say “no” to a Quebec City arena. Winnipeg, along with many other places, watches with interest. As I recall, the sponsorship program mainly got its start in 2007 in sporting venues.
- Blunt Objects: Kyle has very sober, and sobering, assessment of the political year ahead, and the one behind. His prognosis: for everyone, pretty much, things ain’t so good. As a good Irish Catholic, I regard such pessimism as natural as breathing.
- Dawg: The good doctor (like BCL) has a disturbing report on the English Defence League (EDL), a notorious British hate group that enjoys the support of Canadian white supremacists like Arnie Lemaire. As Dawg shows, the Jewish Defence League has apparently been playing footsie with the EDL. If true, a bad move on the JDL’s part. Meir seriously needs to reconsider.
- Curran: Jim recalls meeting the Governator, and how Ahhhnold was ahead of his time on the environment, like Dion was. I’d love to see those two in an action flick together.
