I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake / Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take / Pointing a finger at eternity / I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

Calling Radio Moscow. Come In, Radio Moscow.

The CBC is, effectively, off the air with over 5,000 staff members locked out including Peter Mansbridge’s Huge Head.

(I say this, because having a large head is considered a key quality of a television news reader, and Mansbridge does a fine job, which I figure is largely because of his head. This all, of course, leaves me wondering why he’s making the big bucks and I’m sitting here in some office writing a blog. My head is enormous.)

Anyway, this morning I woke up and instead of the dulcet tones of Rick Cluff’s voice to wake me, heard some form of Native music being played in a constant loop. Not nice.

CBC has apparently decided to lock out workers and local morning shows have now been replaced with a national broadcast, which I suppose means those of us out here on the west coast should expect nothing, given that national really means Ontario and Quebec which really means that the broadcast ends at 0630hrs our time.

What’s an interested guy supposed to do? I cannot listen to CKNW…it’s horrible.

So here’s my message to the CBC:
Get Back to Work! The nation needs you!
