And now, what wil become of us without barbarians?

How odd. I didn't *like* Jack Layton-- the man who gave us Stephen Harper? No way-- but I can't imagine what life will be like without him. Probably because I can't remember what the NDP was like before he became its head, during the days of the Chretien-Martin hegemony. It seems we have no choice now but to become a two-party system, and the Liberals currently being as they are, that means a one-party system. Which is what the Chretien-Martin hegemony was too, but at least it was more-or-less the right party.

I'm also not used to politicians in office dying. It feels most peculiar.
