Thanks! And Homework for Mandryk

Thanks to all who have stopped by for making the launch of The Regina Mom a great success. Within the first 48 hours of existence the blog received more than 500 visits! At the time of this writing, more than 1000 have clicked in.  I had no idea!

Thanks, especially, to Kevin O’Connor, the CBC Sask web guy who dubbed me The Regina Mom, and to Kerry Benjoe, who wrote a wonderful piece about me for the Leader-Post.  Only one thing to clarify there.  My kids are into music and the outdoors, not sports.  Nevertheless, thanks to the Leader-Post for paying attention.  Here’s hoping I’m not their token feminist and that they feature other progressive women in their pages!

And while we’re on the topic of the Leader-Post, I must say to Murray Mandryk, before you write off the left as too radical because they have actually done the work of connecting the dots, you need to learn a tad more about the Security & Prosperity Partnership (SPP).  I know it’s busy being a writer, but, well, shouldn’t the Leader-Post be a bit more fair in sharing all sides of the story?  There is a lot of information out there, not just the select bits that fit with the Leader-Posts ideological mandate.

So, if I might be so brazen a woman as to suggest homework, well, I suggest starting here, at the horses’ mouths, the US-based Council on Foreign Relations.  I don’t know about you, but it makes me nervous that anyone from the USA has anything to say about Canada’s policies.  So, after that lengthy document take a trip here and pick out all those pieces written by Alison @ Creekside.  She’s a woman who does amazing research!

I’ll provide my own commentary on the SPP once I’m over this cold/flu thing that has me down.

    My God, indeed. My God, your God, his God, her God, their God, all our Gods…might I suggest you read the part about “thou shalt not bear false witness”.

    If, of course, you can read.

    Which seems doubtful in light of that erudite and most perceptive post. Congratulations. Seriously. I am gobstopped. Such in depth analysis. Such…asswipe blether

  5. God, sometimes you just don’t come through. Do you need a woman to look after you?
