Call me Ishmael.

The Pequod has set sail again, for the 9th Annual Playoff-Hockey pool.
The pool, one of the greatest that I'm aware of, is run by a few enterprising individuals where I work. It's also one of the most interesting formats I've seen for any hockey pool. Players from each team are ranked from 1 to 16 based on points. For the pool, you pick one player from each team, and only one player from each rank. The entry fee for each team is $10.00, and with 404 entries, there will be pay-outs to the top 10 teams ( if I remember correctly from the year before last).
My team name this year is again Pequod, and is off to a great start, tied for 12th spot in a field of 404. I've got to savour this moment, because it could be my high water mark.

Oh Really?

Test, test, testing...

I'm just trying out the function of being able to make a post to my blog by sending an email.

If you see this, then it worked.

Ok, so I'll admit having been naive enough to be taken in by the American and British propaganda before their invasion of Iraq. I supported our government's decision to stay out of that war mind you, but I still was not opposed to what the US 'coalition' was about to undertake.

With the revealed non-existence of WMD's, my opinion changed.

It was recently revealed that the invasion had been planned to begin on March 10th 2003 regardless of how diplomatic efforts went.

The net result is that, for what it's worth and I know it's not much, I don't trust the current U.S. regime.

At the same time all this was going on, the Canadian Alliance under Stephen harper was saying that Canada should be standing by our friends and 'allies' to the South. Now Harper is Prime Minister, and he's really big on using the Canadian military to stump with .

Add to this mix, the fact that the U.S. is making a strong case against Iran having a nuclear program; our shiny new Conservative Foreign Affairs minister, Peter MacKay is enamoured with Condoleezza Rice.

Oh, and the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad comes out with this.

I'm seriously wondering what date has been chosen for the next war.

He likes strawberries and running on his wheel.

Happy Easter.

Wow; hearsay, but wow.

If this had been Clinton, they would have done more than impeach him.

Of Shit and Fans

Well, my prediction of a conflict between anyone and Iran in Q1 of 2006 was incorrect; I'm 1 for 2 in my predictions for this year.

Still, things aren't looking too good... I wonder if the U.S. and U.K. would be so crazy.
