Death of a Messenger

Don’t kill the messenger! You’ve heard that saying before and it has as much relevance today as in the past. Ages ago before the wondrous technologies for long distance communication were available; the means of sending messages between individuals over great distances fell to the responsibility of the humble messenger.

The Old Man and the Law of the Sea Treaty

It’s always fascinating to watch tenured faculty members leaving their ivory cocoons where they lecture to impressionable teenagers and 20-somethings to come face-to-face with skeptical middle-aged men. Such an encounter occurred last week in one of the few hearings the U. S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee deigned to hold on the Law of the Sea Treaty, the U.N.-generated pact that many fear would cede control of the oceans to that international body.

Or do you more often think of a lone guy trying to stand in the way of change? I’d wager it is the latter.

Here comes Al Gore

In February of this year I wrote a piece that talked about the flawed Presidential campaigns of the two Democratic frontrunners, Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama.  Hillary has too much baggage as well as stratospheric negative perception ratings and Obama plainly has too little experience to be considered anything but a lightweight.

Panicking Liberals play the anti-American card

The federal Liberals are certainly not looking forward to this evening’s Speech from the Throne. Certainty is rare in politics; why we haven’t seen it in well over a week when it became apparent that John Tory was not going to be the next premier of Ontario. But it is pretty well assured that the Liberals are not looking forward to the resumption of Parliament that begins with Governor General Michaelle Jean delivering the Throne Speech.
