I am hardly far left and I disagree with many of her legal positions as law is one of my things and I don't fully agree with anyone in that regard.

Running a female POC is a ripe pick. She has campain and large-scale governing experience, 20 years younger than Joe and I find her to be relatively personable, super smart and a persuasive speaker with prosecutorial focus. I sense that she is the kind of person you can simply task with a mission and she will just go get it done. I like that. I'm pretty sure she believes in things like science too. The Harris/Pence debate could be entertaining for all but Mike.

I am a bit upset though as now Leonard Cohen has to share the honour of being the most famous alumni of Montreal's Westmount high school. Her mom was a doc at McGill.

I just become aware of Playing for Change. They are a non-profit organization, funded by a Walmart heiress, which travels the world recording local musicians performing the same song in their own style. Some 1,000 musicians in 50 countries have been recorded and the results are mixed together. Tons of creators have participated, such as Bono, Keith Richards, Robbie Robertson, etc. Money raised is used to build and fund music and art schools in less developed areas such as Nepal and Rwanda.

Here are the first 2 videos I saw:

1. The Weight- Robbie Robertson (The Band) and friends:

2. Listen to the Music - Tom Johnston (Doobie Brothers) and friends:

I haven't even thought about that song in decades but a machine I was hooked up to at TGH last week had an alarm that beep beeped to that tune! It took me about 8 syllables to name that tune. hehe

Amazing. I am jealous and did not expect to see a couple of hubsters be such big fans. though I really shouldn't be surprised about that.
