A random collection of thoughts on Canada's 43rd general election campaign.

Day 21.

Are we there yet?

That's how I feel about this election at halftime. I'm the young boy who really needs to pee, but his father refuses to pull the car over.

This campaign is bland. It...

Day 2: (pre-debate)

Behold! A random collection of thoughts on Canada's 43rd general election campaign.

I don't suffer from DDS.

Doug Derangement Syndrome is epidemic, with new cases reported every day from The Beaches to Casa Loma.

Tomorrow I'll climb behind the microphone for the first time in a month.

Summer vacation is over, the air is crisp and the news agenda will be piping hot between now and Christmas.

They're demolishing the high school.

The hospital is next to go in this little corner of Canadian solitude. 

My father went to that high school. So did I, although it was a junior high school back in those days. My father's graduating class had more than a thousand...
