I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
I crossed many states just to stand here now, my face all hot with tears / I crossed city, and valley, desert, and stream, to bring my body here

Whither Mr. Martin - Part Two

According to today’s Globe and Mail

In a year-end interview, CTV’s Mike Duffy asked Paul Martin whether he would be stepping down as leader of the Liberal Party if he did not win a majority in the coming election.

The Prime Minister parried the question while hunting for the right words. Then he spoke of the great future awaiting Canada and the big challenges of the changing world. Then he said, “I want to be there.”

To those who think Mr. Martin will go quietly, his message was clear: Dream on.

Here’s a question for you Mr. Martin - did Mr. Chretien plan on going quietly?

There will be a putsch. The choice of whether or not to go may not be up to you. Watch out for those long knives — they hurt deeply. While it may not be clear to me who is wielding it, it’s obvious that someone is.
