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!

For various reasons, I've been spilling quite a bit of electronic ink writing about the Sun newspapers lately. I suppose that it's always a good idea to investigate what the most scurrilous newspapers in Canada are saying, if only to take informed shots at them -- in contrast to most of the chain's columnists, who prefer to take uninformed shots at all things to the left of Attila the Hun.

Today, though, I have found that rarest of things (and no, not a Liberal membership form, either) : A Sun column that actually praises the Chr├ętien government. No kidding! Veteran Toronto Sun hack Hartley Steward is actually giving the new Elections Financing Act the thumbs-up, and giving Jean Chr├ętien his due for it. Be warned, however. The column will be replaced on Tuesday, so check it out now!

Next thing you know, pigs will grow wings, it'll get a bit chilly in Hell, and Barbara Yaffe will write a fair, balanced column.

Okay, that last one was asking too much.
