Probably the biggest relief was not having to deal with ridiculous issues like the Shane Doan debacle. Good grief! What were those dough-heads thinking?
Anyway, it was quite pleasant to wake up and let the other bloggers deal with the crazy political antics in Ottawa, which made me reassess why I was even taking on this self-imposed role.
Folks, there is a life out there that doesn't involve politics and it is sweet.
Will I return? Probably.
Articles like those in today's Sun are enticing me. Lorrie Goldstein advises Premier McGuinty to stick to an attitude of not talking down to the special interest groups and various demographics he is trying to impress (Has Dalton Lost His Edge?)
Christina Blizzard has an awesome column this morning - "Wheels Falling Off for Dalton". This will be a very handy item in the upcoming fall election.
Will I be back? Of course.
But right now, the sunshine beckons.
