Happy new year, and stuff
Happy new year! With the first week of 2007 already over and not having posted a blog entry in several weeks, it's time to get a few disjointed thoughts down for later consideration.
- CBC reports that Lake Nakuru's flamingos are dying out. I was there less than a year ago and saw the flamingo lake in all its glory... this is rather disturbing and worth coming back to.
- Harper's cabinet shuffle... to me the loudest message I get from it is not that Harper cares about the environment, but 1) that he cares about thumping his chest, and 2) that he has a desperate shortage of good talent in his caucus that he is willing to pick from.
- In Canadian politics, rats tend to jump on the sinking ship, so Wajid Khan's bizarre defection is not of particular concern.
- I can't see how Saddam Hussein's execution will help accomplish anything at all in Iraq.
- Public rail transit is slowly starting to enter the public discourse as a positive and important topic in this area.
- Altoona is an incredible place to railfan! I've never been somewhere where there is so little possibility of getting bored before.
- I think email and webform spam should be a capital offense (but don't otherwise believe in the death penalty).
