Watching the Canadian elections (I did, I did!) was a bit confusing for me, the virgin to Canadian elections (virgin to a lot of things actually ), but I don't guess it's any more confusing than our 2000 election was.
I remember first learing about how the electoral college went, and asking "So, even if one nominee had the most votes, the one who had the most votes that COUNT would win?" and thinking that was a bit silly. Was I psychic?
Your daughter is in Julliard? Awesome, what's her instrument? I'm voice (they say I'll be lyric Soprano). As for public schools, every one I've been to throughout my education (and three presidents) had about the same quality of music education (underfunded, sometimes nonexistant. I learned the most from my private tutor, which still didn't amount to a WHOLE lot once I got into univeristy.. it got me in though, and it got me started, thats the important thing!). As for the tuition.. I go to a state school, and under the current administration, the state was able to impliment a program where if you have good test scores and grades (and keep a good GPA in univ.) that you have a full tuition waiver for a WV state school. Not all bad from Bush, eh?
Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee
