LAWN SIGN WARS IV: FOURTH IN A TRILOGYHmm...
It snowed last night in Ottawa, and we'll get a lot more over the next couple of days.
My parents took this picture of the three election lawn signs on our driveway:
They seem to think that this is a sign that, in the Ottawa West-Nepean riding, God's preference is for Liberal candidate Lee Farnworth, whose sign remains snow-free, over Conservative candidate John Baird and NDP candidate Marlene Rivier, both of whose names are somewhat obscured with a slight dusting of snow.
I say that the snow signifies the exact opposite: on the election ballot in Canada (which is still done with pencil and paper), you blot out the candidate you vote for. You don't leave your preferred candidate's circle blank. So, if "God" is saying anything, He (yes, He, with a huge celestial penis and two testicles) is telling us to vote for anyone but the Liberals, whose sign is left blank.
But I think what Eko told Locke on Lost the other week still applies: "Don't mistake coincidence for fate."
