Nation, I've got a lot I want to write about in the next while - most notably, about my recent trip to the Legislative Assembly on Budget Day, an analysis of the budget and the throne speech, and the upcoming Reboot Alberta event in Kananaskis.
All that said, though, I'm having a hard time focusing on politics, with the 21st Winter Olympic Games one day away.
I admit it: I'm an Olympic kool-aid drinker. I'm inspired by the Games, and by the ideals that they espouse. I know as well as anyone that the games of today are MILES removed from the games of 1988 in Calgary, rife with corporate meddling and economic opportunism.
But I just don't care.
The Vancouver Olympic Games are upon us. The youth of the world are gathering in Vancouver, Canada in the pursuit of brotherhood and athletic excellence.
There might be some political coverage on this blog over the next few weeks. But if you're looking for me to eviscerate public officials or opposition politicians during the Olympic Truce, you're going to find yourself disappointed.
The Olympics, at their best, are about doing your best, not about craven self-interest.
Politics, not so much.
But it *should* be.
And if I have anything to say about it, it WILL be.
Wait and see. ;)
