election day

By the end of the day, Edmonton should have its new slate of councillors, etc. And everyone will have forgotten the motley crew of crazies and people-with-good-hearts-but-no-hope who ran against Mayor Stephen Mandel.

I, meanwhile, will remain angry that the only guy who stood a chance had virtually zero substance. Check out his website, and more specifically a link to his appearance on a morning talk show, during which he stumbles over the question of why he's running for office.

Sigh.

(What does this have to do with books, you ask? Nothing. Nothing at all. I just finished reading High Fidelity this morning, and perhaps I feel like being growly and apathetic. I loved the book, by the way. I can't believe one slim novel has so much harsh honesty packed into it.)

High Fidelity's a great book! I'm glad that you enjoyed it. You can keep it if you want, because me and Sarah have two copies between the two of us.
