As long time readers of this blog (both of them) know, I have aspired to become an accomplished Anglican curmudgeon in my retirement. I had no idea how helpful this loooong campaign season would be in propelling me down that path. It’s not the campaigning itself but all the annoying reporting from Olberman on the left to Hannity on the right and whatever blowhard nonsense Lou Dobbs mumbles (Is he unable to sit up straight?). Good grief, no wonder I had a heart attack. Last night I listened to the CBC and was both relieved and delighted to hear the wonderful news about Ontario’s financial plight and the workings of Canadian interprovincial tax equalization payments. From now on my TV will be tuned to one of those stations that reruns Leave it to Beaver and Gunsmoke.
