The Good Doctor @ryanmeili Goes Viral #skndpldr #skpoli

There’s been more than one observer who’s pointed out that the current Sask NDP leadership race is “boring”. I’ll admit that I’ve occasionally had the same thought (and I will also admit that I have considered doing a blog post hypothesizing what a more bare knuckles, US-style NDP leadership campaign would look like.¬† Hint: It […]

Should @sask_ndp #skndpldr Voters Consider Who The Winner of The @saskparty Leadership Is When Casting Their Ballot? #skpoli #pickapremier

“Leadership Races Shouldn’t Be Spectator Sports” – Saskatoon Star Phoenix #skpoli #skndpldr

The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix had an editorial today that I couldn’t agree with more. Their point is that with two exciting, concurrent leadership races happening in each of the province’s main political parties, there’s no excuse for people to not spend $10 to buy a membership and have a lot more direct impact on either the […]

Music Monday – “She has tattooed tear drops/She don’t have to cry/Woman you won’t weep/Don’t you moan”

Always nice to get recommendations of bands you haven’t heard of from your patrons.¬† Here’s an interesting group I heard of today.
