REFLECTIONS ON THE NEWS
Canada votes on October 19 for a prime minister and his ruling party. Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the campaign on August 2. People are calling it the longest campaign in Canadian history. It’s only 78 days, but the average campaign, for the past 10 elections, is 46 days. If the average Canadian campaign is 46 days, and 78 days is long, then the campaign for president of the United States is an eternity.
Wars, elections, rapes, robberies, accidents and murders. The names change, but the stories stay the same.
