A Foundation For Int'l Democratic Development?

A fine idea. The Conservatives and Liberals should be congratulated. The New Democrats have some useful observations, and are not being entirely obstructionist. The Bloc is being weirdly paleoconservative.

An arms-length, government-funded foundation could be especially helpful for this sort of thing.

Very little attention from the news media, sadly. But Carol G. makes sense: Let's get it right.

Dear Mr. Glavin,

When I was "tagged" by Roger, at Are We Lumberjacks, I cringed. I was flattered, but I hate these kind of games. So, not knowing what criterion was used in my selection, I've decided to point out blogs that I read on a regular basis that may not be recongnized as "major" blogs. But have major importance in presenting information about people and ideas that we wouldn't expect to find on the 24-hour news channels, or in the morning paper.

You're my second "tag" choice. It's the "Random Facts" tag. Here are the "rules".
1. Let others know who tagged you.
2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

By the way, if you haven't seen the movie, "Clean Slate", take a look. I'm pretty sure the pic you posted for "To All My Friends On Shore..." is on the wall of the hero's apartment.

Thanks for your writing. I enjoy it. The importance of a Reindeer game is playing, I guess. At least Rudolph purportedly felt that way.

Yours,
OregonGuy

Your back sounds like you had an interesting trip.
Anyway 190 pages of how to promote democracy is all well I suppose.
But how about dealing with First Nations peoples in a fair and democratic way before the government goes off and saves the world.It would give them just that much more credibility.
Democracy starts at home,and it must be applied one hundred percent across the land,or its just more words with little real meaning or commitment,yawn.
