Progressive politics, ideas & culture


I know you are, but what am I?

Sometimes I love the news. As if the astronaut love-triangle wasn’t giggle-inducing enough, I was delighted to be greeted by the following headline in the Toronto Star waiting for the streetcar this morning:

Council bickers its way out of photo

‘An all-time low’ as councillors, mayor can’t agree on seating plan

Some might wonder how these people are expected to run a city if they can’t manage a photo shoot, but I sympathize with this situation. In daycare, my best friend and I were positioned at opposite ends of the bench for our class picture; in the photo (which I still have) she’s looking at me, crying. I’d hate to see the scene repeated.
