Testing the wind

I am still absorbing the full impact of yesterday's horror at Virginia Tech, so I won't even attempt a comment at this point, other than to say that I can't imagine what family and friends of the victims must be feeling.

So for now, I decided to check out the Nova Scotia dailies and see what local folks are saying about the new Red Green show. It would appear that the editors at the Halifax Daily News are scratching their heads just like the ROC.

However, Halifax's Chronicle Herald provided an interesting sampling of letters.

My favourite was the one by Marcel Falkenham of Halifax, who refers to the Green-Liberal discussion as the Watermelon Talks. Brilliant! It really was a seedy situation when you think about it.

I read the last letter (by Robert MacDonald) about 10 times and still can't figure out what he was trying to say. Translations are welcome.

In any case, if all those letters are indicative of the general population in Central Nova, it would seem that Peter MacKay can breathe easy. NDP candidate Louise Lorefice may have a good shot at second place.

Meanwhile, the Star reports that the outcome of the Watermelon Talks has disenchanted some of the green rind as well as the seedy red pulp. Perhaps it's time for Central Nova to send the whole stinking mess to the compost heap.

Love the metaphors.

I think perhaps Mr. MacDonald is under the mistaken impression that Ms May is an NDPer -- that, or he wants all Nova Scotians to vote twice to be sure they get it right.

Seedy Red Pulp!
Oh my .... now that's a descriptive characterization of Liberals if I've ever read one!

Seedy Red Pulp!

Yeah, I wonder how many we can spit out in the next election...

OT, but it looks like the video bible of environmentalists will be distributed to BC schools. The gift, announced yesterday, is worth about $10,000. "Inconvenient Truth" DVDs are being donated by the Tides Canada Foundation. (The Province newspaper)

Let the brainwashing begin!

should read "according to" The Province newspaper.

Soccermom, I heard about that. Tried to block it out, but I guess there's no ignoring it. I just hope they find time to fit everything in with the mandated gay sex education and all.

Soon they'll have the kids reciting prayers to Al Gore before starting classes.

This "movie" is automatically accepted as gospel, when there are so many slamming it. And Gore is such a hypocrite. I think as the years have gone by, common sense has washed out of the gene pool or something. Or it's all those hippies having a last kick at the can. Not sure which it is.

Or maybe their brains were affected by all the weed.

The provincial leadership candidates don't like the deal much either.
