Sunday Funnies

In Canada last week there were 4 by-elections held. The governing Conservatives won two seats, the Bloc Quebecois one and the New Democratic Party one. Michael Ignatieff's Liberals, who a month ago were itching to bring down the government and force a general election, came up empty. Meanwhile, the debacle of long line ups and short supplies of H1N1 vaccines continued apace both north and south of the border. And finally, there would seem to be a difference of opinion out there respecting the economic recovery in America.

Send a search party... and be sure they've got some H1N1 vaccines with 'em!

Cat Lady: That pretty much sums it up!

That old lady standing in line isn't far from the truth from what I hear. I once had a boss about like the doc in the last cartoon. He didn't care if you had pneumonia and a 103 degree fever. You'd better be at work or else...he died at 42.

John: That's actually a Canadian cartoonist from the Ottawa Citizen. He's got a great handle on political and wold events and is usually very, very funny.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
