Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch - either in illustration or word form - and the other would make a companion sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.
I know this makes me a horrible, horrible person but it kinda nice to see a Canadian politician in the news for a change.
Rob Ford’s story is tragic, I know, and the dude needs some help. And it’s got to be irritating to Torontonians, too, because there’s not a whole lot they can do to force him out of office. Plus, it’s kind of telling that they don’t have a procedure in place for this already.
Still. When you live in the U.S., where politicians behaving badly is an almost daily occurrence, it’s a lovely change of pace to see our sensible neighbors to the North cope with uncouth behavio(u)r by an elected official.
I have zero doubts that by this time next week someone will catch Lindsey Graham running around the House floor wearing nothing but a speedo, a clown wig, and six-inch heels. Just for example.
The crazy spotlight will be back on us soon enough. For now, though, I’m just going to lean back and enjoy.
