The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

Right-Wing Envy - Do you have it?

Why is it that now, if you were to reand the opinion sections, that right-wingers are having all the fun? They are, you know. Rush Limbaugh chortles as he slags off gays, unions, feminists, and Muslims. Ann Coulter proves that bile is always in style. David Brooks alternately skewers and praises, always with wit and style.

And the lefties? Pedantic. Sanctimonious. Humourless. Unable to tolerate diversity among the "left". Not all, but many.

What the hell's wrong with this picture?!??

John Powers recently exhorted those who aren't into the brutality of the New Right to kick back, have a good one, and fight the good fight, with a spring in your step, a smile on your face, and to have a wild time doing it. Jack Shafer of elaborates.
