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!

Freudian slip?

Found poking around the Fraser Institute's web site: a profile of one of the Institute's fellows (aka someone who jumps to conclusions and then lacquers some stats to back 'em up). This one's a bio of one Claudia Hepburn, who handles the education file:

Claudia Hepburn is the Managing Director of the Ontario Office and Director of Education Policy at the Fraser Institute... She is a frequent media conmmentator on education issues.

A "con-mmentator?" Well, some (including me) would say that the FraserFolk have been doing a con-job on the public since the place was founded nearly 30 years ago as a direct response to British Columbia electing its first sorta-kinda socialist government.

Con-m-men-tator. Damn, that's funny.
