Still married, solvent

Whoops - I just about got through the whole day without noting that it was one year ago today that Jerry Aldini - Only The Name Is Phony was launched.

As it happens, my first post of substance from that first day related to the Supreme Court of Canada; namely, the elections gag law, upheld 6-3 in a decision written by Bastarache (there is "a danger that political advertising may manipulate or oppress the voter.").

This hasn't gotten much attention in a year, so I'll haul out the best point I made for a blogiversary special:

Regular readers of this BL*G are advised two things: the likelihood of the author retiring is remote. The likelihood of the content focus continuing to veer wildly is near certain.
