Was that the sun?

Missing: One large ball of burning hydrogen. Last seen in the sky slowly and mysteriously being covered by a large grey mass...

Anyone seen the sun lately? I haven't. It feels like Vancouver, minus the mountains, lyons gate bridge, and jogger's wearing "Pezzi".

The conservatives have jumped ahead by a significant amount in the polls. Warren Kinsella, in his wise musings today, observes that "every Canadian above the age of six understands that Harper can't form a majority government," and so there won't be a repeat of last election, where a several voters changed their minds in the last week or so for fear of a Conservative majority. He also observes that "the real bosses of the next Parliament will continue to be Jack Layton and Gilles Duceppe." I agree. It will be a minority gov't, and as long as it doesn't fall quickly, I think it will be good for Canada and we'll see some progress.

Today's fun links are few and far between. McSweeney's continues to entertain. Anyone who ever watched G.I.Joe as a kid will appreciate this, the Journal of a Cobra. Anyone who's a fan of the board game 'Clue' (there's gotta be at least one who reads this...) will get a kick out of this piece.
For the religious people out there, read this, an article about the religious right and poverty, and this, a story on religious trends from 2005.

Canada plays Russia tonight. Don't forget to watch it. I'm outta here.

Here are my comments:

the sun - I am holding it hostage, and will only return it if Jack Bauer himself comes to get it...if anyone can do it, he can.

the politics - how do you feel about a minority conservative gov't? scared? good? hypnotized by the clear blue of S. Harper's eyes?

the links - well played. the clue one was great...brought me back a ways...what did you do when you ran out of the 'Clue' paper? photocopy? make your own? I especially liked the McSweeney's link to "Procrastination" - classic.

OK, i'm done now.
