Well, I think I may have been a little too caught up in my dash of real life lately - Back to the melange of Canadian politics.
I was just perusing the latest issue of Macleans, when I came upon an article about "Lord of the Rings". The stage article, "Breaking the Curse of the Ring" is worth a read. Not sure if you can get it on-line.
Apparently, LOTR is the butt of many late-night comedians' jokes. Conan O'Brien is said to be just piling on the satire. Writer John Intini says that the "3 1/2 hour, two-washroom-break extravaganza has been pilloried by far more serious critics", such as the New York Times, and the Daily Telegraph who wrote, "You can't always solve a problem by throwing money at it".
Somebody should tell the Liberals that.
Here's the clincher though: According to the Canadians Taxpayers Federation, Dalton McGuinty, 'Lord of the Squanderers' spent $2.5 million of our money to bring this monstrosity to Toronto!!
Couldn't that money have been better spent elsewhere? Health care perhaps?
Ontario, we've got to break this hobbit of voting Liberal!
