Yes, if you are going to do it this is how to do it.

I might use different music but this is the way to have a wedding.

Back in the days when I was designing and building theatrical scenery I had a few contracts that were for weddings but I never got to see what actually happened at the wedding. One in particular that sticks in my mind was for a Greco-Roman theatre stage and skene. I wonder was the wedding party all dressed up in Bacchic costume and regalia, was it a Dionysian festival?

Well usually whenever I hear or see a reference to Conrad Black‘s Canadian publication The National Post I roll my eyes and wonder "Oh boy, just what are the global warming deniers trying to tell today" but today I read an op-ed there that I thought was thoroughly delightful and put a grin on my face. For those who may not be initiated and familiar with the The National Post it has proudly proclaimed it’s intent to "provide a voice for Canadian conservatives" and openly advocates a "unite-the-right" movement in Canada and is the birthplace of Lawrence Solomon’s The Deniers.

The torrent of e-mails and some 48 on-line comments later and I have a new appreciation of just how fiercely some hold on to their denier status.


Ya just gotta read the whole piece, its great.

Maybe it’s just guilty pleasure and I shouldn’t really say this but I just love seeing the readers of CP get a stick in their eye.
