Great White North Musings-There was a Charles Barkley quip that the world is serious crazy when the "best rapper is a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy, the tallest basketball player is Chinese, and Germany doesn't want to go to war." Add a Canadian golfer winning a major. Mike Weir grabbed the green jacket yesterday in a playoff. What's not so crazy is voting the PQ out of office in Quebec; the provincial elections are today. Polls suggest that the Liberals are doing well, but in the last election, they won the popular vote overall but the PQ won more seats. I'm hoping that the statist PQ get shown the door, but I wish it wasn't the Liberals who would be the ones to do it. For both of you Canadian political junkies out there, here's a live National Post feed of the latest returns. [Update 9:20PM-It looks like the Liberals are in. With 122 of the 125 ridings posting, the Liberals are leading in 71.]
