I have three sons and in the recent election all three voted Conservative
(we kicked the socialists out in our area June 8). However, I could only
count on two of them getting onto a list such as this. Middle son tapes
Rush and watches it after work - he gets it better than I do because he
is in the Toronto area. I never viewed it appropriate to indoctrinate the
boys BUT I think they learn from their parents. Middle son is also the
only one I had the honour of teaching (course in Public Finance which I
teach so maybe my indoctrination went further with him because of the
readings and other things I assigned). Number 3 son listens to Rush in
Chicago where he attends Moody - so he is not far from having been
indoctrinated either.
 
July 1 is Canada Day but we don't do it up like you do July 4 - the last
two summers I have been in Indiana on July 4 and I loved it. Anyway,
since we are all celebrating - we have much to celebrate together
(Windsor and Detroit have their Freedom Festival between the two holidays
although I have never been present when it was on - the title I think is
appropriate for what we had and hope to continue to have in our two
countries. That is not what I wanted to write about but I could not resist.
