Random Thoughts: Safe Journey Jack

Jack Layton lost his battle with cancer this week and that saddens me for a bunch of reasons, not the least of which anyone losing their battle with the Big C really pisses me off (I hate the Big C). I will state first and foremost, I did not agree with many of Mr. Layton’s ideas and concepts about how Government should work, but I do salute his dedication to his job and his constituents. I have heard folks call Mr. Layton, The Best Prime Minister Canada Never Had, but I don’t agree with that. Jack Layton is the Best Leader of the Official Opposition Canada Never Had (he died before he could act fully in his capacity).

Good night, sweet Prince, your journey is over. Hopefully, your minions will fill your shoes and continue to act as the conscience of the nation. Please read his final letter which has some very poignant sections for those suffering from Cancer and their families.

Whole lot of shaking going on in the U.S., with earthquakes and now a hurricane bearing down on the East Coast, so Mother Nature is again reminding us that no matter how bad you think the economic world can get, she can make our lives infinitely more exciting if she so chooses. Do you have Hurricane and/or Earthquake insurance? Might want to think about it soon, by the looks of it.

I enjoy all comments (even the ones that question my intelligence), and will try to respond to most comments, so please feel free to comment away. For you spammers who continue to inundate me with your drivel, keep it up as well.

With all the shaking, winds and fun and games in the Political world down south (and HP cancelling their tablet computer as well) there were some exciting ideas put forward by some of my favourite writers:

Have One For Me too Jack


“To other Canadians who are on journeys to defeat Cancer and to live their lives, I say this: please don’t be discouraged that my journey hasn’t gone as well as I had hoped.”

Author: Jack Layton eloquent even in the face of his own mortality.
