Gone fishing

I awoke the other night from the strangest dream. In it, noted NHL pugilist Georges Laraque, having been banished by the Montreal Canadiens, had just been named deputy leader of the Green party. Crazy stuff.

Anyway. I take this as a sign it’s time for a vacation, so the rest of the week—barring wildly exciting new developments—will be quiet.

And on that note, a quick note of thanks for your continued attention. Readership of the Commons and this blog has grown steadily these last few years, 2009’s numbers doubling 2008’s and this year’s monthly turnouts often far exceeding previous highs. So thanks. It is appreciated.
