I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
I've proven who I am so many times / the magnetic strip's worn thin

Paul Martin’s Largesse

The very morning after our Prime Minister liberated our airwaves to apologize for the corruption that is the Liberal Party of Canada”: I received no less than 5 press releases from Liberal ministers, announcing 71 new Canada Research Chairs.

Yes, that’s right - 71 in a single day. CDN$99 Million in funding released by Minister Emerson to establish these chairs.

I’m sure the timing was completely coincidental. There’s note a shred of doubt in my mind.

Of course, if this was an attempt to divert attention, it failed. Tomorrow’s newspapers will be the same as today’s I’m sure.

And for the first time in a very long time, I feel compelled to say shame on the Globe and Mail for such a softball editorial. It was almost embarassing.
