I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.
If your life is a leaf / that that the seasons tear off and condemn
They will bind you with love / that is graceful and green as a stem

Follow the Leader
Both Barak Obama and Stephen Harper announced they weren’t going to attend the Copenhagen environmental summit, demonstrating a shortsightedness that one would hope world leaders would not exhibit.
A couple of days ago Barak Obama announced that he would attend after all.
Today Stephen Harper announced he would attend after all.
It seems as if Canada is, these days, playing follow the leader to such an extent that we’re not even willing to play in the sandbox until our friends ask us too.
That’s not leadership.
