What I've been reading

The Conservatives are trying to force American copyright law on us again. They tabled their "Made in Canada" legislation today, and just as feared it's a carbon copy of the DMCA (with a bit of that nasty mandatory review removed). Are they listening at all? Canadians have made it quite clear that we don't want stricter copyright. Hopefully the Liberals can find their spine long enough to keep this off the books.

The New Yorker is predicting the eradication of the Republican party in its current form. I hope, for all our sakes, that they're right. Their economy is teetering on the edge, and they need a bold leader if they're to avoid going over it. McCain would have made a fine placeholder president in 2000, but he simply doesn't have the vision to repair the damage caused in the last 8 years.
