Bemoaning Parties

Woden’s day. Nasty morning in gym. Too many weight bouncer bullies. But I did get a useful tidbit from the podcast, an episode of the CBC’s “Quirks and Quarks”. Seems that male praying mantis have two brains: one in the head and the other in the genitals. So they can continue reproductive activity while their mate is eating them.

Ran across an article this morning bemoaning England’s large (?) number of political parties and the mess that makes forming coalition governments. Moaning is relative. What about when you only have two parties and they represent less than half of the electorate. Not a democracy, right? That’s Amerika.
