The History of “Doctor Who”

I haven’t seen a single episode of Doctor Who in the 47 years it’s been on TV, but I suspect these guys have seen them all.

I get the impression it’s the kind of show that if I did watch it, I’d never tell anyone. Like being a fan of “Two and a Half Men” or “How I Met Your Mother.” You can like them in the privacy of your own home, but it’s better not to mention it to any of your friends. So…

Does anybody watch Doctor Who?

Leaders Debate Transcript

The next Canadian federal election happens on May 2nd, 2011. The leaders of each political party will have in total a little over a month to campaign. I’m not confident in the ability of any of them to lead the country, and last night’s leaders debate didn’t help, though I admit Jack Layton didn’t remind me of Alex Trebek as much as I thought he would. Way to go Jack! My favourite moment from Jack was when he said this — and I quote:

“Stephen Harper’s tax cuts are for wealthy corporations, who will just use them to, I don’t know, stuff their pillows, or something — I’ve never really understood how this stuff works. The New Democrats would provide a tax break to any corporation that created a job. That’s the best reason to vote New Democrat.”

Anyway, for those how missed the debate, the transcript is finally available online from Points of Information. If you care about Canada, I suggest you read it.
