I am once again temporarily in the employ of a great Metropolitan newspaper and shall be moving to fortified compound in the tri-city area forthwith!

What could go wrong?

From the same brilliant commonsense school of "thought" that gave us a high school dropout as Minister of Education in Ontario, the same braintrust that appoint a creationist quack as minister of Science, the Harper government has topped itself and appointed John Baird aka Shouty McAngry aka Screech O'Pointy aka Old Yeller as our top diplomat. This is sure to restore our reputation on the world stage.

After all Baird is nothing if not diplomatic

and committed to honesty and democracy

in fact, he has a national reputation for calm, quiet efficiency

Yes, Canada is "back" on the world stage. Unfortunately, it appears we are going to be the annoying opening comedian that comes on before the featured performers.
