I did like this bit, too:
The Conservatives could only sputter and fume after their unofficial partners in the Bloc Quebecois deserted them to join the Liberals and the NDP to cut off debate on the budget.Now that's politics!
They compared their Liberal, NDP and Bloc opponents to crooks, Satan and Hollywood homicidal maniac Hannibal Lecter.
Lone Primate has informed me that I'll be able to participate in Canadian elections even without citizenship or the right to vote. I'm amazed! I will definitely investigate this as we get settled it. Not quite the "on arrival" list, but probably the "during the first six months" list.
Meanwhile, back in New York City, I haven't posted anything for Pride. Yesterday when I switched on our New York City local news channel - just to check the temperature outside my air-conditioned cocoon - I saw this story on a gay hockey league at Chelsea Piers. So happy Pride from wmtc to the NYCGH!
