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!

“They Told You So!”

So screamed the banner atop the front page of today’s National Post. Exulting in the coalition victory, the pro-war daily decided that it was time for a little finger-wagging, and tiome to remind all the sissy liberals that the Post’s army of ink-stained warriors was right all along.

But what were they right about? The outcome of the war? See a couple postings down. Very few of the voices opposed to the war, and certainly none of the credible ones, had much doubt about who would win here. However, in the minds of most of those who never met a war that they didn’t like, victory is its own justification. It still doesn’t answer any of the broader questions.

And what about those weapons of mass destruction, one of the ostensible justifications for this war?
