Working in Montréal today --Payin' on the Bush Warz

Good morning folks,

I will be working in Montréal today and will be away from all offices on Friday, returning to the Toronto office on Monday.

I will look back to this email a few times on this morning's flight and see if anything inspires me to write further.

Read something in the paper about the Repulicans in the U.S. Congress entertaining the idea of a temporary default on that country's debt payments, just as a signal to Obama mind you, get him to curb spending.  Damn irresponsible of him to keep up the payments on the Bush warz.  

Would immediately cause U.S. bonds to gain the coveted 'junk' rating, and even after interest payments would resume after a few days, the rating would not go back up to triple A, which could/would have rippling effects across the international economy, starting with China I imagine.

All right, nowhere to really go on that one.  Will check back in a few..

Does anyone actually know what the hell REM's 'A man sized wreath' is even about?  Have just a verse or two in my head, but it makes no sense.  Makes me miss the days when REM's music meant something, you know, like 'What's the frequency Kenneth' and 'Orange Crush' :)

post ed:  According to Shannon the song mock's Bush 43.  I re-listened, yep --sure does!

Okay, that's it for me, be sure to tune in next week for the first of a 6 part exposé on the resurgent Communist influence on eastern European fashion and style, and will have a guest article by Canada's own country bumpkin from trailer trash roots, Shania Twain!

Yes, I made that part up, yep, that part too.

Have a good day, any bets on Vancouver's scheduled performance on Friday?


  1. The Ottawa Senators are one of several teams to keep an eye on during the expansion draft process.

    The custom nhl jerseys Sens are jerseys store in a bit of custom jerseys store a sticky situation when it comes custom nba jerseys to their defense. They asked Dion Phaneuf to waive his no-movement clause so game jerseys they limited jerseys could expose him in the Vegas draft custom nfl jerseys next week, but he said no.

    They have Erik cheap nfl jerseys Karlsson, Cody Ceci wholesale nfl jerseys and Marc Methot that they likely want nfl jerseys to custom mlb jerseys protect. Unfortunately for them, they custom jerseys just can’t elited jerseys keep all three (as of right now) because they have to honor Phaneuf’s no-movement clause.
