Living in Interesting Times

Go to sleep and wake up to a different world.

Osama Bin Laden is dead which came as a surprise. I honestly thought he was already dead.  Of course now the conspiracy theorists will come out and disclaim the whole thing, but then, that’s their lot in life.

What I’m going to find interesting is the fallout. Particularly with Pakistan.  Increasingly unstable politically, how will they react to a US military operation on their soil, and more importantly, how are they going to explain the world’s most wanted man managed to live in a million dollar mansion close to the country’s capital?

Canada is in trouble. Why? Because Jack Layton and the NDP just might win the election, or, at the least become the official opposition. He’s already said he’d be happy to create a coalition to oust the Conservatives, and from the looks of it, only the Liberals would have enough seats to make that worthwhile.

My prediction.  Another election within two years.
