Ah, Labour Day. We reap the rewards of our industrial organizational heritage every day but only bear it passing reference one day a year. So sad. Once the suits bought machine guns and hired thugs. More on that from five years ago where you can thrill to the spectacle of link rot. You know, as we all brag up the internet no one mentions link rot. It's like the shelves of libraries have midnight book cover switching incidents, page swappings.
- An excellent explanation of the Scots law on compassion from a Scots lawyer. Accept no newspaper columnists as a substitute. And while to consider the politics of mercy, consider the question of boycotting Scotland's goods.

- On Wednesday Tory Jason Kenney called the NDP "a party of hard-core left-wing ideologues". By Friday they are the best pals they have left. Unless the separatists step up. Iggy may not quite know where he is going to put down the pot of boiling oil but he sure has picked it up.
- Damian has posted an excellent piece on the Afghan war and Canada's soldiers. Will we really have an election during wartime and it will not be an issue?
- Don't you wish you lived in a real beer tent culture, too?

Must run. Yesterday's twingy back makes for today's busy Friday at the desk. Must find that grindstone of mine.
