Another Harper, Bush like momemt

Today Harper flew over the flood zones in New Brunswick. That's right just like George did over New Orleans (well similarly anyway). Steve "is touring areas of New Brunswick hit by the flooding of the St. John River."

I love reading the CBC reports on Harper. Here's a direct clip from the article:
Harper arrived in Fredericton on Friday afternoon, where he boarded a military helicopter to survey the flood damage in the Maugerville area. Harper said a lot of houses appeared to be under water and people were upset but New Brunswickers were handling the flooding well.
"Harper said a lot of houses appeared to be under water" Simply beautiful.

Anyway this is all great PR opportunities for Steve as he tests the waters (so to speak) for an election. Two days ago he was in Edmonton saving ducks and today he is flying over the flood waters of those lazy east coasters. You can just hear him, in the chopper, turning to Premier Graham "Look Shawn, for christ sake make sure that none of these fucking people start congregating at hockey arenas."

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
