OK. So you might not know it by just reading here, but there’s a war going on in Iraq. Shocking, right?
I’ve been kind of ignoring it because it just scares the crap out of me and I figure most people don’t come here for war news anyway. But you really can’t escape war. Maybe we’re safe from the physical aspects (at least I hope we all are), but the political and emotional waves are inescapable. They even reach hockey.
Ron MacLean and Don Cherry have been debating the war on HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA. Cherry is pro-war while MacLean isn’t. The left-leaning CBC has been letting the two guys tear it up, though. I’m not sure why. But it’s pretty interesting. Especially considering that here in the States, we’re still not really open discussing the war in any kind of meaningful way. There are tons of people for and against the war, but you don’t see them together at the same time. Except at the Oscars.
I don’t know, man. I just want everyone to come home safely.
