Where once it never rained till after sundown

What would we do without academics? Caroline Andrew, the dean of social science at the University of Ottawa, said the Conservative agenda would have resulted in decentralizing and privatizing parts of the federal government, hurting the economy. (Text quoted from the print edition.) I'm ever so glad we have intellectuals like Ms. Andrew to tell us that government should not only have the role of mother and father, but as prime employer as well. It makes me glad I'm not a sociology major. Some people, I suppose, just can't bear the thought of those horrible proles being allowed to take responsibility for themselves, and creating a private economy not wholly dependant upon the whims of wonks with calculators in Tunney's Pasture or Gatineau.
