Yahoo! News - Ga. Evolution Dispute Embarrasses Some

Last week, the morning after the election, I traded quips via email with Scott Ambler, a Canadian IT consultant and the author of several books on software development.

I mentioned to Scott that the success of the religious right in determining the outcome of the election made the Great White North look even more like an inviting if chilly oasis of Liberalism.

This was Scott's reply:

"Strangely enough, at Software Development in September I had 4 or 5 complete strangers come up to me at the conference and ask me how hard it was to emigrate to Canada. A lot of people seem pretty frustrated with the political situation. Welcome to democracy in action.

Actually, from Cleveland your best bet would be to get into a row boat, go across the lake, and claim political refugee status. We'd likely have you set up in a condo on the outskirts of Toronto with a check for a few thousand dollars by the end of the week."
